Issues with seeing mount

I am sure that I am just doing something stupid. I installed Emby on Proxmox, and I added storage from the DataCenter Level, but Emby cannot navigate to it. What am I missing?
I installed Emby on Proxmox
You installed Emby directly on the PVE host? Usually you want your hypervisor as clean as possible with all services isolated in VMs or at least in a LXCs.

and I added storage from the DataCenter Level
What does that mean? That is very unspecific. What folder? What storage type? What disk? How did you add it? What are you seeing? What can not access what?
Hey there, sorry about that. I added Emby as a LXC container via helper scripts "bash -c "$(wget -qLO -"" Then I added via Datacenter my share drive 192.168.xx, and when I go into add that directory to Emby, it's not there. I have looked in every directory. Im guessing there is another step to make that SMB/CIFS Storage visable?
ok so I got all of that mounted and it looks awesome. Is anyone aware of how to fix this issue, I have tried assigning groups, changing ownership, changed a test folder to 777, and nothing is working. I have a Synology NAS with /volume1/data/Videos/Metadata and I have proxmox mounted to that with /mnt/pve/Synology/data/Videos/Metadata. I installed Emby on the Proxmox and I just want to be able to allow Emby running on Proxmox to be able to write to that folder. I keep getting the error, it sees it there. Here is the Error when I click that folder: Emby Server requires write access to this folder. Please ensure write access and try again. I am racking my brain on this.
