New installation with SMBClient as data path and error chmod 0770 even with nextcloud version 18

Goodday all !!

After a installation on a virtual Ubuntu 18.04 machine hosted on a windows 2012 server I received the this error:
Your data directory is readable by other users
Please change the permissions to 0770 so that the directory cannot be listed by other users.

What I did:
On the windows host server shared a folder with full rights for one user only
Installed Ubuntu 18.04
updated all files
installed smbclient with cifs-utils and made a line in fstab in where filemode=0777 and dir_mode=0777 is used together with the right user and password (same as in the windows system.
Testing give me that I can read, write and delete on the ceated Ubuntu /media/share.
after installing mariadb (version 10.1) and the nextcloud (version 18) software I received the first log-in screen from nextcloud, after enter all information i received the above mentioned message.
After changing the dir_mode to 0770 apache2 only displays text saying the server was not configured properly, changing back to dir_mode=0777 I got the text back…

Please solve this in the next release,
