My first guesses would be:
  - Is your web server on port 9999 properly configured to serve the 
Debian CD from that URL?
  - Use a proxy, or use "localhost", but not both - otherwise the proxy 
will be looking for the material on "localhost", which is not where the 
material is located

I have a special web server called "Debian", which serves both the 
static images and the apt-proxy written by a friend of mine.  Thus I 
always use "debian" as the hostname:
  deb http://debian/cgi-bin/apt-proxy/debian sid main contrib non-free
  deb http://debian/cgi-bin/apt-proxy/debian-non-US sid/non-US main 
contrip non-free
