How can i have a ListView inside a NestedScrollView

I have created an app with a page that need to load content dynamically from web service. I want to have listview that can scroll together with a linear layout inside NestedScrollView. But when the contents is loaded to the listview, it doesn't scratched to its full height.

Here is my code.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v4.widget.NestedScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior"
tools:context="com.myquestionth.myquestionth10.Profile2Activity"
tools:showIn="@layout/activity_profile2">

<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:orientation="vertical">

<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:orientation="vertical">

<ImageView
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="400dp"
android:background="#BBBBBB" />

<TextView
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"
android:text="Media heading"
android:id="@+id/textView2" />

<TextView
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceMedium"
android:text="Cras sit amet nibh libero, in gravida nulla. Nulla vel metus scelerisque ante sollicitudin commodo. Cras purus odio, vestibulum in vulputate at, tempus viverra turpis."
android:id="@+id/textView8" />

</LinearLayout>

<ListView
android:id="@+id/listView"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="#70bcf5" />

</LinearLayout>

</android.support.v4.widget.NestedScrollView>

Well, I would suggest you 2 ways to solve that problem:

1) Try to make LinearLayout a header of your ListView. Note that header should be inflated as it is written here.

2) You mentioned that you use NestedScrollView, so maybe you should also try to replace ListView inside NestedScrollView with LinearLayout, as wise people suggested here, adding row views in loop similar to how your adapter works.

Good luck!
