List workflow doesn't start if item created from another workflow

Hey Guys,


Probably something simple I'm missing here.


I have a calendar with a workflow (W1) that emails users when a new item is added. This works great if the item is manually added by a user.


However, if I create an entry in the calendar from within another workflow (W2), the list item workflow (W1), mentioned above, does not start.


I'm assuming I've done something wrong or this is a limitation of Sharepoint (O365) or Nintex.


Can anybody shed any light on this?


I appreciate that I could call the list item workflow (W1) from W2, but would rather not.


Many thanks for any help.
