The current guest configuration does not support taking new snapshots

Today I realized that one of my VMs can no longer take a snapshot. Before I could and I didn't change anything. After research here I see that it may be a partition format problem. The VM is stored on a Synology Nas.
I moved the VM to Proxmox and I can now take snapshots. When I look at my Nas the partition is indeed Btrfs type and when we look at the table on the proxmox wifi we see that this format is well supported for snaps so why suddenly I no longer do them?
My volume is in btrfs but the authorization and in NFS is that the problem?
