Firewall not working

My proxmox firewall doesn't seems to be working anymore: access keeps working even when I force to close connections.
I even tryed to lock myself out but couldn't get it to work: disabled all rules from datacenter, from pve, from containers/vm and then enabled firewall with "input policy = drop".

Sometime ago I've got blocked outside proxmox, and I made these commands: "iptables -F" and "nft flush ruleset" (or maybe others, these were the ones I could capture from history at shell).

I'm running Proxmox 8.0.4 in my LAN, with direct access to server.
