Storage - NFS Configuration, cannot see all NAS network shares

I'm trying to setup storage using a NAS network share. When I configure a new Proxmox Storage, I can only see one NAS share titled 'public'. I cannot see any others.
In other words, when I select the Export drop-down menu, I only see '/Public'.

I have other NAS shares including one named 'backups' that I want to use for backups. I've tried manually entering the path, but i get a permission error.

My 'public' share is configured on my NAS as read-only for 'everyone', so that makes sense why Proxmox can see that share. I enabled the same read-only permissions for 'everyone' on some other NAS shares, but they still don't appear in the Export drop-down.

I'm a bit baffled as to what I need to do. I've rebooted proxmox, but that didn't help.

I've tried using the pvesm nfsscan command and it only lists the 'public' share.

I've experimented with creating a proxmox user named 'proxmox-storage' and given them proxmox permisssions to be an admin for Datastore and added the same user on my NAS and given them read-write permissions to the NAS share, but it hasn't helped.

I'm hoping someone can provide me with some steps to set this up correctly.
