[Linux] Stale NFS file handle

This problem happens when listing or creating a file within a NFS. In my case, I was creating a controlfile for a standby database. I saw this error:

SQL> alter database create standby controlfile as '/stage/solusoft/backup/ESCOGRD.ctl';
alter database create standby controlfile as '/stage/solusoft/backup/ESCOGRD.ctl'
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01580: error creating control backup file
/stage/solusoft/backup/ESCOGRD.ctl
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status
SVR4 Error: 151: Stale NFS file handle
