The hint:
My ~/Maildir directory is "managed" by dovecot pop/imap.
Dovecot uses names starting with dot for "sub folder directories".
[e.g. sub folder/sub maildir "Sent" is kept in ~/Maildir/.Sent directory]
Gnus "refuses to see" sub directories starting with dot.

When I created soft link ~/Maildir/Sent -> ~/Maildir/.Sent gnus could
see "Sent" folder (nnmaildir:Sent) but could not access messages stored
in the "sub maildir".
