BTRFS storage

Hey guys. I'm in need of help. I'm trying to add a USB stick to my server to serve as storage, just for testing. I already have a HD with 1 TB of capacity in BTRFS and I want to add the storage of this pendrive in BTRFS as well. I turned the pendrive into btrfs with mkfs.brtrs /dev/sdbx and mounted it with mount in a specific directory. Everything worked, but when I added the storage on Proxmox, it doesn't show the capacity of my pendrive but rather my BTRFS storage, as shown in the attachment images. Did I do something wrong?

local-btrfs02 is my pendrive
My storage.cfg:
dir: local
path /var/lib/vz
content backup,iso,vztmpl

btrfs: local-btrfs
path /var/lib/pve/local-btrfs
content iso,rootdir,images,vztmpl,backup

btrfs: local-btrfs.02
path /mnt/local-btrfs2
content backup,images,rootdir,vztmpl,iso
prune-backups keep-all=1
