Issue with pfSense config in Azure

Requesting configuration help for a pfSense setup in Azure…
Perimeter Subnet 10.7.0.0/29
- wgpfsense1 (10.7.0.4)
- testvm (10.7.0.5)
Web Subnet 10.7.1.0/24
- WGWEB1 (10.7.1.4)
Goal: Have testvm enter 10.7.0.4 in a browser and have the traffic be directed to 10.7.1.4 (standard Port Forward I think). Note that pfsense has a single interface...Azure is handling the routing.
I have a NAT rule in place:
Src addr: *
Src ports: *
Dest. addr: WAN address
Dest. ports: 80
NAT IP: WGWEB1 (alias)
NAT Ports: 80
And a FW rule (auto-generated when NAT rule was created):
When I try to browse from a server in the perimeter network (10.7.0.5) to http://10.7.0.4 I get back ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE.

Wireshark trace from the web server traffic should be redirected to (10.7.1.4) shows no packets with tcp.port eq 80 and ip.src==10.7.0.5
Its like the packets aren't getting to the web server at all, even though the firewall rule allows and the NAT is set up.
If, from 10.7.0.5 I open a browser and type in the web server address directly (10.7.1.4) I get the site returned fine. This proves to me that the Azure fabric is routing the packets from the 10.7.0.0/29 to the 10.7.1.0/24 subnet.
Questions: Did I miss anything in the NAT setup? Shouldn't the pfSense appliance send packets to its default gateway not on its own subnet (Gateway IPv4 10.7.0.1)? Is there other diagnostic data I can look at or provide?
Thanks in advance,
