Using Nginx will probably reduce the load.  I haven't used NFS in a long
while but I don't recall it being all that lightweight.   

I suspect that if your NFS server seems heavily loaded it's exactly
because you are using NFS to serve public files.

You can run both. The main point is to only serve files to the public
using Nginx and reduce NFS access to only internal use.
