MIRROR SETTING PROBLEMS

Hello :) I have problems setting mirrors in Arnold. I tried with an Standard Surface setting Specular: General (1), Roughness (0) and IOR (0.01) and apparently it works but I don't get to reflect a mirror in front of another mirror, it turns black. I hope you can help me :) thank you so much!

Is specular_ray_depth greater than 1?

Increase metalness to 1 for a mirror. There is a chrome material example here.
