I moved it a bit outwards, sliding some millimetres to the opposite direction from the neck ( to the right on the players point of view) and the strings are intonating way better now, It is finally playable!!! Does it have any undesirable side effects?

Also some open strings tend to sound a little sharp if sustained, is it related to the nut? how do I solve this?
Could you post a pic of the guitar and the bridge? I've never seen this, unless you are taking about a bridge and tailpiece.
