[Samba] Problems with the option "force user"

I've set up a samba share which was working fine.
But now, I need to force to be a especific user, so I've modified the 
configuration to use that option.
And now it complains about not existing the directory.

Here's the config:
   comment = advantage
   path = /home/fileserver/advantage
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   create mask = 0770
   directory mask = 0770
   force user = advantage
   guest ok = yes
   case sensitive = no

Is there any problem with that?
