Adding Directory for backup of VM's on 2 VE's

I have 2 Physical Servers each with ProxMox 5.3-6.
In each Server there is a 4TB HDD with Prox Mox installed.
In each server there is additional 2 x 4TB hard drives and 2 x 10TB hard drives.
VE01 and VE02 are in a cluster
At the moment there are 2 VM's on VE01. I will be moving one to VE02.
The plan is to have multiple backups of VM01 and VM02 on Multiple drives on both VE's.
I have setup NFS.
But when I go to add an NFS in ProxMox i get an error.
create storage failed: error with cfs lock 'file-storage_cfg': mount error: mount.nfs: access
denied by server while mounting (500)
I have most likely missed something simple (still getting used to Linux)
