Prompt [Q] NFS mount works but only in terminal (other apps see it as empty folder)

I have shared all the media from Linux (Debian) using NFS share. On my tablet I can mount that share following way:

- Opening TERMINAL EMULATOR app
- Becoming ROOT user using following command: su
- Mount using following command: busybox mount -o nolock,ro,vers=3 -t nfs 192.168.0.198:/home/josk/mounted/safe_share_media /sdcard/Movies

If I then go to the directory: cd /sdcard/Movies
and list all the files: ls -l

It displays all mine files that are shared from Linux.

The problem is that I just see it as empty folder if I try to view that same folder using some other app like ROOT EXPLORER, VLC....

I found following info on Timduru's rom site:

CIFS & 3rd party Mount Apps:
The Rom/Kernel have native support for them as long as you mount it outside or /storage/ and /mnt/shell/emulated/
I think /sdcard/Movies folder should be okey?! Could anyone help me to solve this one? I'm so close but yet so far in my mounting business.

Hardware:TF101
ROM: Timduru's [ROM][KK 4.4.2] [ KatKiss-KitKat #019 ] [Stable]
