In html, you can not use a form inside another form... try changing your html so you can put one after the other, or use JS to emulate the behaviour you expect.

What does the form need to do? From what I can see you have 2 submit buttons. Can't you give each button an individual name and process it at controller level?

Yes - and that's exactly what I would suggest.
