Why port 587 is shown as closed if I have opened it in /etc/shorewall/rules?

I've installed recently Shorewall firewall and I've setted a rule that ACCEPT incoming TCP conections from network to my host. I've made this changes in /etc/shorewall/rules file but then, when I execute nmap, the port is shown closed as you can see in the output below:

Nmap scan report for mail.xxxxxxx.com (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
Host is up (0.00090s latency).
rDNS record for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: ec2-xx-xx9-xx-xx.sa-east-1.compute.amazonaws.com
Not shown: 995 filtered ports
25/tcp  open   smtp
80/tcp  open   http
110/tcp open   pop3
143/tcp open   imap
587/tcp closed submission

I've deactivated ufw firwall. I'm running an Ubuntu server 16.04
