Currently Being Moderated

Our company currently runs the databases on RAC (Oracle 11gR2). We generally take the full backup of databases everyday using the datapump. My issues here is I am unable to delete the dump files older that 3 days using the below script

00 14 * * * find /nbds2/orabkp/*.dmp.gz -mtime +3 -exec rm -f {} \;

but I am able to delete the files using the below command

rm -f abcb.dmp.gz . I verified the file permissions etc on the dump file that is generated everything looks fine. Can someone help me

Thank you
