This appears that your created or possibly the mounted a directory has
some odd permissions - e.g.:

$ mkdir -m600 foo
$ ls -la foo/
total 0
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? foo/.
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? foo/..

Try unmounting your NFS share and checking permissions/UMASK on both sides.
