First check the status of your snapshot. It going to take a while to run and complete.

GET /_snapshot/_status

Did you register your repository in Elasticsearch?

Did you also add your path to your repository in elasticsearch.yml -> path.repo ?

Change your location in your json to use full qualified path of your nfs mount point path. For example, if your NFS mount is /mnt/ash

would be

"location": "/mnt/ash"
