I've just carried out a little test of this (partly to check I'm not going mad) and found that at about 2 feet the sharp part in the recorded picture is about an inch short of where I've focused.

It always helps to post a sample image

In your camera instruction book Nikon list six types of autofocus subject where autofocus may not always be accurate. Posting a link will help determine if the problem is the equipment or your test target.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
