Thanks a lot, but I know how to use hot spot.
I'm interesting of is it possible to share Internet from my iPhone (hotspot) true Airport extreme to all users who can connect to network?

This is not possible.

It is... provided you don't mind doing some shenanigans to make it happen each time.
If you have a desktop mac, turn internet sharing on and tell it to share the wifi from your internet to your ethernet.
then connect the airport to the ethernet.
each time you want to do it, you are going to have to connect your computer to your iPhone, and make sure that sharing is one (and restart it if it is not working) but other than that it should work
I have done this a couple of times
it (in theory) would also work with the jailbreak wifi sharing applications.

The question...as I understand it.....was whether it was possible to share an Internet connection on an iPhone with an AirPort Extreme router, which would in turn distribute an Internet connection to other devices.
In other words, the iPhone would somehow act as a modem and be tethered to the AirPort Extreme router to provide an Ethernet signal at the WAN port.

YES you can! - Gotta love those "you can't" answers from people who haven't even tried. ;o)
Just have your Airport Express "Join" your iPhone. It will share your Internet connection through its Ethernet port. I currently have an AppleTV connected via Ethernet to the Airport Express. With this setup I have wireless Ethernet AND wired LAN connection. I can even AirPlay to the AppleTV and have Internet at the same time. Haven't tried a switch/hub but see no reason why it wouldn't work. This proves to be very useful to create a wired network with Internet from a cellular device without Ethernet.

...and no need for a computer sharing a connection either.
