Sounds like you aren't redirecting.

Maybe <to type="redirect">?

I suspect the page you're sending your users to have some sort of
problem. Once you have redirection working, you'll have to figure out
why your other page doesn't work.

If /first is the context path of your web app, then forwarding to
/second isn't going to work unless cross-context is enabled for your
context. What is your application's context path? Is /second in another
context? If so, perhaps the redirect will fix everything.
