Mod wont work, nexus mod manager

I installed nexus mod manager using lutris a few days ago and everything works fine. I can start it up, install mods and enable them. But when i go into fallout4 i cant enable the mod because it says files are missing.
I saw a guy who took the fallout4 folder from nexus and made a symbolic link to the game folder but that didnt work for me.
Any suggestions is much appreciated.
