Public URL issues

Hello I’m running a nextcloud server for me and my friends and I’m trying to make it accessible outside my local network. I assigned it a domain from duckdns.org and I ran lets encrypt for the domain on the server. My friends outside the network aren’t able to access the server using the domain and I’m not able to either on my network. Yes I updated my host file to point the local ip that the server has on my network to domain but its still not working. When I access it using the ip I’m able to get to it instantly. when I check the https: info for the site it shows the domain name and says that lets encrypt issued the cert.

What, precisely, occurs?

The public IP? If the public IP, does that also work for your friends or just for you locally?
