The fact that it's nickel is irrelevant, it's the fact that it's a really hot ball of metal. When it is submerged, it evaporates the water around it so quickly that the steam creates a layer of gas around the ball. This is called the "Leidenfrost effect" you can use it to pull off another "magic trick"...

Melt a small vat of lead to 850 degrees Fahrenheit (~450 Celsius), dip one of your fingers in water and quickly dip said finger in the molten lead. The water on your finger will create a barrier of steam to protect your finger from the molten lead. There's only a little bit of water on your finger and the lead is really hot, so the barrier will only last a fraction of a second, so you can't have your finger in the lead for longer than a second.
