Try using the X-command.

X 'nohup /sas/*******/sample.sh &';

Here's the way we do it for one of our SAS/AF apps.  The user selects a specific application (_app)  and task (_prog) so those are captured as macro variables.  Other specifications are captured and swapped into the program as macro variables.  SAS is in the path so we don't need to specify the path to it.

 x "nohup sas -sysparm &_server -unbuflog &_progDir/&_app.&_prog                                                                                                                  
            -log &_logDir/&_app.&_prog..log                                                                                                                                                    
            -print &_listDir/&_app.&_prog..lst & ";
