Should "Egy nagy folyó a város mellett folyik" also be accepted here?

Theoretically yes, but there is a strange emphasis on "a város mellett" with an indefinite subject. Yet, there could be a context where it is justified.
More natural would be "Egy nagy folyó folyik a város mellett."

I wrote the same way and it was rejected as wrong.

How about "A város mellett egy nagy folyó folyik"?
