There is no part of a pier on land. Not according to the wiki: "A pier is
walkway over water..." and "Lastly, connect the pier with other ways on
otherwise it will result in a "island" that can't be used for routing."
then goes on to give a misleading or contradictory mention to connecting
to the last node of the pier on land.
Since your pier connects to a footpath, replace the bit of the pier on land
with a closed way tagged area=yes + highway=pedestrian, or similar
(I don't know if area=yes + highway=footway works). Just because
the surface the person walks on is continuous doesn't make the bit
that's on land a pier.
