Is it ok for a priest to call himself "Father"?

Jesus said to call no man "Father", but Paul calls himself a "father" to the church in Corinth (1 Cor. 4:14–15).

So, does this mean that it is ok for a Catholic priest to call himself "Father", but wrong for me to call him "Father" as some fundamentalists suggest?
Update: Church Leader, you said "Paul called himself a father to the church in corinth more in the context of an earthly father's guidance." This is why Catholics call a priest "Father"
Update 2: So, Church Leader, what DID the Christians of Corinth call Paul? You are sure tehy did not call him Father paul, so you must know what they DID call him.
