Check options of occ command. There you can scan your directory.

It’s best not to do that, as it can lead to silent data corruption. But as @rakekniven said, you can tell Nextcloud to scan the new files using an OCC command. You can also set in config.php (
'filesystem_check_changes' => 1,

A better approach would be to set things up using external storage, so Nextcloud expects changes to happen externally.

Like @linucksrox said: Don’t do it.
