    It is sticking in the fork.

    The 'nut' is a long tube that runs through the fork to support the braking moment. They have a lot of surface area so there is quite a lot of potential for friction.

    Take the wheel out, apply a judicious squirt of WD40 in there and wiggle it until it comes loose.
