    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1034/791/D=9/1434) If he performed first salah with the intention of Zuhr (Fardh) salah with jamah and then led the jama’at of Zuhr salah in other mosque, then the salah of those who performed Zuhr salah behind him was not valid and thus they will have to reoffer their salah; since the second salah was nafl for him and those who perform fardh should not follow one who offers nafl.
