You are missing the "public_html" in the path.  Try:
    mount -t nfs /root/server/

Run the exportfs(8) command on the nfs server and see if all file systems
are correctly exported by the server.  Check syslog and /var/log/messages
on both client and server for clues on what is breaking.

If you are using iptables on any of your machines, you will need to configure
it to permit nfs traffic.
