Nies is quite common in Germany. The parishes I have checked are Westernhausen and Berlichengen but I have found the surname in other parishes. If you can find where your ancestor was born you can get the parish records through the LDS Church. There are also some books which list SOME people who immigrated from Wuerttemberg to America and if you find your ancestor on these, it tells you the parish name. The book is called Wuerttemberg Emigration Index. Try to find out when he arrived.
