Guys I have a question about NAT and firewall rules
Here is my NAT

Here is my firewall

The question is -

Do you need to make IPv4 destination to openvpn server, gateway and etc? Or just leave destination all and then goes the rules which I have ?

    Although, use one firewall rule for all NATed services is possible.
    But from security point of view, it's better add different firewall rule for dedicated server with services.

    So that like this,
    source: allowed source, destination: server 1 private IP, service 1(ex. TCP 80)
    source: allowed source, destination: server 2 private IP, service 2(ex. TCP443)

    Can you explain more on this?
    U see that I have 1 rule for GEO
    Then Geo block all

    and then goes rules like you said - WAN to LAN  source ANY destination server private IP service (ex TCP 80 )
