Need help with mergerfs mount

Hey guys, I followed the perfect media server 2017 guide to set up mergerfs with snapraid on proxmox. The installation went fine, however when rebooting or booting the system it hangs on boot saying that /mnt/storage can’t be mounted. The below is the entry I made in the fstab as per the guide.

/mnt/disk* /mnt/storage fuse.mergerfs direct_io,defaults,allow_other,minfreespace=50G,fsname=mergerfs 0 0

If I comment out the entry the system boots fine. If I don’t comment it out the system goes into emergency mode. Running journalctl -p 3 -xb shows the system getting stuck trying to mount /mnt/storage. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I’m very new to Linux, be gentle.
