Remote Access content using Vodafone Connect Huawei HHG2500 fails. Cannot port forward

I've recently switched to Vodafone Connect (Fibre).

Since the switch I cannot access my Plex server from outside of my network.

I've checked uPNP - its on
I've checked the ports - the Plex server is listed
I've added a manual port for forwarding - still does not work
I've turned the firewall on / off - makes no difference

The only way I can access my Plex library is by exposing my main computers IP address to the internet by adding it to the 'static NAT/DMZ/Exposed Host' option.

I'm not sure this is the correct way to do this. Isn't this exposing my whole IP / computer to the internet?
