I appear in a different location than the one I selected

Updated

Typically, if selecting a country/server to select to, you should appear as being in that country or location when verifying your location on IP geo-location websites, such as http://whatismyipaddress.com/.

If you are appearing in other locations, you may be re-routed due to usage of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) traffic, such as Torrents, on servers that do not support P2P. If so, you can learn more by reading this article: https://support.nordvpn.com/hc/en-us/articles/206939499-Peer-to-Peer-traffic-with-NordVPN

If that is not the case, or you are already trying to connect to a P2P-compatible server, you may be using a different VPN service in the background that might be running at your workplace, your Antivirus/Firewall, or web browser. Try turning off these services and see if the IP address location changes back.
