problem running erlang program in background

I am having trouble on Linux running an erlang program in background.

I have been using the command..
"nohup erl -s module start -noshell &"

on other systems that are running linux.

However, when I do the same with a new erlang program I get a message

[root@REDACTED mgtest]# nohup erl -s tcp_sniffer start -noshell &
[1] 18929
[root@REDACTED mgtest]# nohup: appending output to `nohup.out'
[1]+  Stopped                 nohup erl -s tcp_sniffer start -noshell
[root@REDACTED mgtest]#

and it will not run.

Any ideas..?
