linux nfs

I‘ve netapp NFS server with /data3 as shared directory. I type the following command at Ubuntu Linux to mount the NFS server:

mount fs2:/data3 /nfs/
mount /nfs/

But I’m getting an error which read as follows:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on fs2:/data3,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount. helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog – try
dmesg | tail or so

How do I fix this problem?
