Mojave Timemachine Problems

I want to use my Macbook Pro 2009 as NAS for my Timemachine backups.

But I have the following problems:
On the old Macbook the entry < Advanced Options> does not appear under the shared files when right-clicking.

In the system settings Timemachine in Mojave under <Select backup volume> only the Airport Extreme appears, but no other possible volume.

What have I done wrong? Can anyone help me?

I would be very grateful for help.

If you want a NAS

You should get a NAS. If you want TimeMachine you get some drive or Apple's solution. What I read you trying to do doesn't seem to work.

Nod back. As presented I haven't seen that work.

Hence, get a NAS, etc.
