URL Rewrite / mapping in asp.net

I use the URL rewrite module in web.config to make canonical URL. That works perfect.

Now I want to make some easy "shortcut" urls that is mapped to the original long url.

Example:

If user writes http://www.example.com/contact/ that url should point to this spesific url (not redirected if possible): http://www.example.com/templates/sections/common/module.aspx?id=5790

I tried this, but no luck:

<rewrite>

  <rewriteMaps>
    <rewriteMap name="Redirects">
      <add key="/contact/" value="/templates/sctions/common/Module.aspx?id=5790" />
    </rewriteMap>
  </rewriteMaps>

  <rules>
    <rule name="CanonicalHostName" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="(.*)" />
      <conditions>
        <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.nettdating\.no$" negate="true" />
      </conditions>
      <action type="Redirect" url="http://www.nettdating.no/{R:1}" />
    </rule>
  </rules>

</rewrite>

How do I make (static) friendly URLs like I try to do here?

<system.web>
    <urlMappings>
      <clear />
      <add url="~/contact" mappedUrl="~//templates/sections/common/module.aspx?id=5790" />
      <add url="~/contact/" mappedUrl="~//templates/sections/common/module.aspx?id=5790" />
    </urlMappings>
</system.web>
