I have read and re-read your post several times and cannot decipher what you are trying to accomplish. You might get more feedback if you were able to articulate your request better.

if you have a working samba server X and you have a nfs server Y and you want to share Y trough samba on X then I would suggest you mount the nfs somewhere on X and then you can use it like it's a local folder.
and if you mount it on /mnt/nfs you can just share mnt/nfs to get it working.
