This is true, and it exactly states what's wrong with your syntax. It
expects to be a mount name, as mounts will fallback to files in webroot
with the same name, if they exists, you can use a file as well.
Therefore you can't just put the full path there, like you did. (And you
path does not seem to point to webroot) If you want to have a fallback
file, put it in webroot and just put the filename in the fallback-mount,
as you would usually do with a mountpoint:
