Sprocket axle nut won't thread completely

Hello, I recently put on a new rear chain, rear sprocket and tire swap. My issue is that I can not get the axle nut to fully tighten to allow me to put the retaining clip through. I did not disassemble the rear hub assembly and only removed the rear wheel and sprocket.

I have tried putting it back on and off several times but it's as if the axle miraculously shrunk.

It appears as if I have plenty of threads sticking out on the wheel nut side, can the axle slide freely in the hub assembly?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Before pic?
The picture shows the nut fully tightened and is only getting partial thread engagement. The other picture is of the wheel side axle nut which is fully engaged.

Disassemble, check if the rear axle is correctly seated and check the spacers on the sprocket side.

Perhaps you could post a picture of the spacers on the sprocket side?

Those are new parts? Looks kind of dirty. Used parts might not fit the same depending on which spacers are needed, etc.

Yes, the sprocket and chain are dirty but new, the sprocket is OEM so I don't see how a different spacer would be needed.

You may need to delete the spacer if the sprocket isn't OEM?

Is the whole set up OEM because the sprocket flange looks like a billet aftermarket one not the shiny silver OEM one.

If it's aftermarket you are probably spot on, I believe the large spacer is not used? Isn't it built in to nut?
