Plex cannot read SMB or NFS mounted directory

I’ve mounted my NAS media to my host machine (Ubuntu 16) running Umbrel to ~/umbrel/data/storage/downloads folder since this is one of the locations mounted to the Umbrel container.

Plex is able to see the root mounted folder but is unable to see the contents. I’ve tried both NAS and SMB mounts with permissions set to 0777

What can I do so Plex will be able to see my mounted folder?

When setting up transmission complete and incomplete folder to the mounted path it instead created a local filesystem path with the same directory structure instead of reading and writing from the mounted path. This local filesystem path is invisible to the host until I unmount.

For reference here is the fstab config for both NFS and SMB

NFS: /home/user/umbrel/data/storage/downloads/synology nfs nouser,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 0
