Proxmox 6 and ZFS dataset share

Recently, I have added SSD disk to my Dell T30 and installed Proxmox 6 on it.
Before this I was running Proxmox 5.4 installed on HDD.

I have migrated VMs and containers from Proxmox 5.4 HDD to Proxmox 6 SSD successfully (with some little trouble having two 'rpool' zpools).

But still have one issue with my update.

My Hikvision cameras record video on NFS share exported by ZFS.
I have installed NSF server into Proxmox with

# apt-get install nfs-kernel-server && systemctl start nfs-kernel-server

and then exported dataset with sharenfs property.

All was working fine before update to Proxmox 6.
But now camera can see NFS share and can format disk. But after some short period of time, camera show status of NFS share as offline and then as uninitialized.
I am able to format it again, but story repeats...

So, my question is what was changed in Proxmox 6 in part of NFS server?
What is the reason of such behavior of NFS share and how to fix this issue?

As workaround just created one more dataset and exported it using sharenfs property.
May be old dataset does not work because it contains snapshots and zpool status propose to upgrade pool...
