Have you checked which directories are already in $PATH and contain a mvn ?

Change your export statement to

export PATH="$MVN_HOME/bin:$PATH"

in order to make sure that your mvn comes first. Besides that you might want to scan for variants of mvn that are already on your system:

find / -name mvn
