Gollum, believing that Bilbo already knows the way out of the cave, leads an invisible Bilbo to the exit. Gollum also believed Bilbo to have his ring (his precious), so he fervently searched for him. However, Bilbo not knowing the way out of the tunnels, indeed found freedom by following Gollum. And indeed Bilbo did have the magic ring and was able to follow Gollum undiscovered because the ring made him invisible.

Gollum guessed that Bilbo actually knew the way out and thought he was chasing Bilbo. Bilbo just followed Gollum and found the exit.
