Iron-nails & Iron weights. Do they keep the balance?

balance

You have a balance beam, the kind of scales that tips from one side to the other, depending on the weight on each side. 10 kg of the iron-nails balanced on the scales by iron weights. The balance beam submerged in water. Are the scales in balance?

The 10 kg of the iron-nails occupy the same volume as the 10 kg of the iron weights. The Archimedes Force will be the same for both iron-nails and iron weights. In conclusion, the scales are in balance.
