If the underlying nfs volume is read-only, make sure that the volume is exported as a read-only share by the nfs server or mount the volume as a read-only datastore on the esxi host otherwise, the host considers the datastore to be read-write and might not open the files. Configure your exports telling nfs what to share is very simple everything is listed in the /etc/exports file in that file, you'll list the directories that you want shared.

Where nfs_server is the nfs server’s address, and mount_point is the local mount point on the client side for the nfs directory you may also consider using autofs on top of nfs as described in unified linux login and home directory using openldap and nfs/automount.
