Alias IP and NAT doesn't work

I am having issues doing a pretty simple thing, and as I am running out of ideas, it's time to call some help.
I am using PfSense 2.3.2 and want to add Virtual IPs to access my LAN, using port forwarding. I am pretty sure my problem is linked to some routing problem as my IPs aren't in the same block and I already had some problems before because of that. Let's say I want to ssh a machine from my LAN using this new IP.
So I added my IP in Firewall > Virtual IPs
Type : IP Alias
WAN / Single Address / 37.59.xxx.xxx/32
Then, I setup Firewall > NAT > Port Forward
Single Host or Alias 37.59.xxx.xxx (I am using a Firewall Alias IP here)
Destination Port Range SSH
Redirect Target IP 192.168.0.10
Redirect Target Port SSH
Nat Reflection Use System Default
Filter Rule Association Pass
When I telnet 37.59.xxx.xxx 22, I have a timeout.
If I add some rules on Firewall > Rules > WAN, I can activate ICMP and ping my VIP. I also manage to ssh my PfSense via this VIP if I add the according rule, but when I want to reach the LAN using NAT / Port Forwarding, it always times out.
I tried to use CARP instead of IP Alias, same problem.
What am I doing wrong ?
Thank you for your time.
