nginx Restart Issue after Cert-Update (Letsencrypt)

we've got a strange issue with nginx and letsencrypt.
- A daily job is configured to run "certbot renew", which updates all the
certs on a webserver (round about 30 certs)
- After the certbot run we do issue a nginx reload

Issue: The certs aren't updated in nginx
We've than added a hard nginx stop/start in the script. But this doesn't
cure the problem.
When issueing the stop/start on the command line, all is fine.

Any idea, what is the cause for this?
I've did lots of googling, and searching here in the forum as well, but
without any hint.

Thanks for any hint,
