Multiple indirect maps in NIS/AutoFS not working

Hi All

I am using RHEL 5.4 and 4.7 on hp servers and mine is a NIS/AutoFS setup.Recently a request has come from customer to mount a different directory from server on a subdirectory in existing mount point.

when user do "cd /project/one" /project/one from server will be mounted.
Now their requirement is as follows.
When they do "cd /project/one/new" it should mount /project/new
i am using NIS database in autofs.
My /etc/auto.master contents are:

/project yp:auto_project
P.S: i can manually mount the server filesystem /project/new on /project/one/new. But couldnt succeed when i tried with NIS/AutoFS maps.

Can someone help me?
