Post Move a command to background.


Hello.
I like to move a command to background and I found "bg" and "fg" commands but I like when I move command to background then its running and not show me the result suddenly when its finished. For exmaple:
Code:
$ sudo nmap -A IP
Starting Nmap 6.47 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2017-09-01 18:04 PDT
^Z
[1]+  Stopped                 sudo nmap -A IP
$ bg
[1]+ sudo nmap -A IP &
In above example, when the nmap command finished then it show the result in the terminal suddenly.

Thank you.
