cannot exit normally after "nohup blablabla > output.txt &"

I have been using "ssh" to connect my computer servers and sumbitting jobs by "nohup blablabla > output.txt &". However, after this, I can't exit to my original shell. Recently, I found this more and more annoying. I wonder if some server-side or local setup can solve this problem. Thanks!

if you put the commands in a script, you may run the script from your ssh session with "at -f <script file> now"
you need to run atd on your server... atd will execute the script and you can even disconnect your session while the script keeps running
