I had a quick look over the .log file for anything that would catch my eye, and did see "No file Try-nomencl.nls,” which didn’t surprise me, but I don’t know why this file failed to be produced. Maybe I should also say that I never did anything actively to set up pdflatexmk. Were it not for Overleaf, I would keep thinking that I have a syntax error vis-a-vis the nomenclature package.

How did you typeset the file? Did you use Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T)?

I usually put it at the top of the file but within the first 20 lines of the file is OK too.

When I typeset using the pdflatexmk engine it all automatically gets compiled (no need for separate runs of pdflatex, makeindex, pdflatex the engine takes care of everything and teXShop configures things so that the engine knows how to deal with .nlo files, etc. I get a fully typeset file with the nomenclature there.

Good Luck,
