You can't have nested <form> tags like:

  <form action='foo'>
    <form action='bar'>
      <submit>
    </form>
    <submit>
  </form>


However, if I understand you correctly you are trying something like the
following:

  <form action='foo'>
    <select>
      <option>bar</option>
      <option>baz</option>
      <option>chu</option>
    </select>
    <a href='new'>add select item</a>
    <submit>
  </form>


This is perfectly legal.  Perhaps if you posted some code scraps?
