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.

Hope that's it,
