Have you restarted Gnus or reloaded .gnus since you changed it?

Different parts of Gnus all use ~/Mail by default, but in different,
incompatible ways.  (I guess they assume they won't all be used at the
same time, but sometimes that's wrong.)  I'd suggest using a different
directory to ensure this doesn't interfere with any other parts of
Gnus.

I don't know, but you should be able to fix it like this:
$ cd ~/Mail/nnmaildir
$ rm spam
$ ln -s ~/Mail/spam spam
