Create symbolic link in Linux guest on Windows host

  linux, symlink, virtualbox, windows

I am running Virtualbox Linux 32 bit guest OS on a Windows 10 64 bit host OS. I am sharing a folder between the host (windows) and the guest (linux). When I am trying to create a symbolic link in the guest I am getting the following error:

ln -s file1 link1
ln: failed to create symbolic link 'link1': Operation not permitted

How can I enable the possibility of creating symbolic links by the Linux guest, on a Windows host, within a shared folder?
