text from `man exports`
Machine Name Format
wildcards (you have using it)
Machine names may contain the wildcard characters * and ?. This
can be used to make the exports file more compact; for instance,
*.cs.foo.edu matches all hosts in the domain cs.foo.edu. However,
these wildcard characters do not match the dots in a domain name, so
the above pattern does not include hosts such as a.b.cs.foo.edu.
end of text
then you see, your wildcard match only localhost at all
but i don't understand, why you need export some directory to the world
