how to capture oracle export log while running as background process

I ran the Oracle 9i export command from a terminal to export out a big table using "exp andrew/password file=andrew.dmp log=andrew.log"

From the terminal I can see that the export is running as there is some output from the oracle export job. The export job is not complete yet. When i go check the andrew.log file, it is empty as I notice that Oracle will not straight away fill in the andrew.log file. If i kill the export process, i can see from the terminal that the export job has been terminated, however if i check the andrew.log file, it is still empty.

Is there a way via the OS that i can capture the message from the terminal and output it into a OS file so that even though the oracle export command is terminated, i can still have another logfile to refer too. In real life environment the export will be run as a cron job, so there is no terminal to refer too, should there be some problem.

You can use any of the output redirection technique.

Can you show me of an example script as i am new to unix.
Thanks in advance
# 4  
I have created the script as below;
nohup exp ers2/password tables=COM_AUDIT_TRAIL:COM_AUDIT_APR file=/export/home/bea/andrew/test/tmp/com_audit_apr.dmp log=/export/home/bea/andrew/test/tmp/com_audit_apr.log >/export/home/bea/andrew/test/tmp/nohup1.log.

When i run the script, from my observation, in /export/home/bea/andrew/test/tmp/ directory, the scripts create nohup1.log but it's empty. It also create nohup.out and fill it with the oracle export message.

How can i pipe the message to nohup1.log instead of nohup.out?
