i have checked nxlog logs and this is the error

The error message suggests that NXLog can not read the file. I am assuming that you are using im_file to read this file.
You may need to set permissions on the account running NXLog to have access to that file. It is inside of a users directory so you may do better placing it into another open location.
Over all though, the permissions are the problem.
