Poke your finger further in, and wiggle it about a bit. Length is important.

It's easy to put the nut on if you put the car on axle stands, but it's not easy to tighten the nut up without a specially shaped spanner, assuming your nut is the pickup pipe securing nut.
This might help with location https://www.volkszone.com/VZi/showthread.php?t=708387
and this might help with the spanner.....
