Nunit project throwing System.IO.FileNotFoundException for dependency of referenced project

Lets say my solution has 2 projects:

  • The first (code-sharing project) called "MainProject" (A .NETStandard 2.0 project).
  • The second called "MainProjectTests" (A Nunit test project) with some unit tests for each class into "MainProject".

The first project (MainProject) has a NuGet dependency called "dependencyX". Obviously, the project "MainProjectTests" has a reference to "MainProject".

So when the test runner runs a test of "MainProjectTests" that calls methods from "MainProject" that uses "dependencyX" I'm getting a System.IO.FileNotFoundException exception:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException : Could not load file or assembly
'dependencyX, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one
of its dependencies.

Why am I getting this exception? When I add "dependencyX" to "MainProjectTests" all works fine, but it seems to me not a good practice... How to solve it?

Thanks for the help.
