Haven't tried your cmd but I believe you'd need to download the file from nexus using -O before uploading it to AEM

Another point to consider is the credentials of nexus vs AEM - Not sure if you have the same credentials for both or different

you may create a script or pipe it


The file should be a file that is accessible by the account you are using to run the curl command. Usually, this file is located on the same machine where the curl command is being executed from.
