( I have no problems when I try to If this is the exact input you entered, I see a small problem. If you give the input to a human, "nx" is interpreted as "n*x", but unfortunately MMA isn't human. try ...[Table[Exp[-n x].... as you did for Sin[]. It works for Exp[-5x] because it understands 5 as a number, whereas "n" it doesn't know.
