fstab does not affect nfs.  Only mounting volumes.

NFS requires setup from both ends.  You said you edited the fstab on the
client, but did you do the server end?

The /etc/exports file on the server must have a line allowing the client
to mount the exported volume

It should have a line similar to this
	/home	<client IP>(options)

Since you say this is a new client setup, have you verified the server
is exporting the volume to that client?  If you edit /etc/exports you
will need to restart nfs on the server.
