[Samba] Writing to shares directly

Within a Samba configuration, is it not advisable to create files on the
directory on the local machines themselves? Out setup is like so:
Server 1 (where the files reside):
Server 2 (mounts the above drive):
If, on Server 1, I create a file:
# echo test > /data/shares/app01/test
The file is created, but on Server 2, I cannot seem to edit the file as I
get the permission denied warning.
However, if I mount the /data/shares/app01 directory on Server 1 and write
to that directory, I can write to the files from other machines fine.
Within smbstatus, it says the file is RDONLY and oplock is NONE when
I write to the directory itself and not the mount.
I'm wondering if I set things up alright and whether it is bad practice to
write to the directory directly?
