why nfs lose loop device ?

hello, my os is slk 9.1

my server's IP is
I run:
mount -o loop cd1.iso /hd/cdrom
and ls /hd/cdrom worked fine.

and my exports file:

then, I start nfsd service and showmount -e
on client box (ip:
mount /mnt/nfs

ls /mnt/nfs/cdrom, no any files!

and if I modify server's exports config file:

and exportfs -avr , mount /mnt/nfs
then, ls /mnt/nfs worked fine!

but why?

why my nfs server must export /hd/cdrom, ain't /hd ?

thx for any idea.

Just because you mounted the iso image in /hd/cdrom, not hd
