As you wish ;)
On the server (firewall in your case) edit /etc/exports and add:

(ro) will prevent NFS clients from writing to that location at server level 

On the client (webserver) simply add similar line to /etc/fstab /graphs nfs defaults 0 0

/graphs must exist on clinet machine. Then point youd httpd to /graphs.
