Some folders not showing in NFS share

Ok I've got NFS setup and my share mounts without giving any errors. When I go to the mount directory I can see the files in / that I've shared but I cant see any folders on an externally mounted or anything in the home directory. Anybody know why? I set chmod 777 to the external HD's directory but that didnt help:

root@woolybox:/mnt/nfstest/media/NewHD# cd ../../home/
root@woolybox:/mnt/nfstest/home# ls
How do I fix this?
Also, is NFS the fastest between NFS, SMB and SSHFS? Is it the best for transparently sharing drives? Thanks in advance!!

Edit: I didnt know that NFS couldnt read the external drive because it's vfat so I wont be using sshfs any faster than samba or any better at sharing devices?

It's mostly likely going to depend on your use case and requirements. Since both are fairly easy to setup, you may want to test both and see which one works best for what you're trying to accomplish. If you have additional details on what you'll be using the mount for, someone may be able to give you their real-world experience.
