The anchor needs to be on the bow roller. Re-designing your set-up may be required. A short bowsprit would solve the problem, and a different roller with a pin that locks the anchor to the roller. At a mooring, the line should go through a chock on the side of the bow; my boat already has this, but I suppose you could add a chock to your boat pretty easily. Most bow rollers are not designed to take shock from a mooring in a storm, anyway...
If the anchor is on the bow roller, and the mooring line is through the chock, they should never interfere with one another. You can see this set-up in some of the pics posted by Maine Sail.
