and it is for Nickel,  I suppose?

for His-tagged may be yes, but metal chelation may be used for purification
of very many native proteins (I mean without His tag); literature examples
are interferons (Zn and Cu), hGH (Cu), phosphoproteins (Fe) and so on. Every
such protein preffers a particular metal. Nickel isnt a particularly common
one in those cases ...

(Unless someone tried it already (Zn on NTA), I do not want to waste time).
