No, I remember reading somewhere, Tolkien did name the captain Gothmog. The movie Gothmog is pretty weird, he's got tumors all around and his whole right side is paralyzed.

Movie Gothmog
Orc who fufills some sort of commander level position the assualt. He does not appear to direct anything other than the front-line orcs. Probably equivalent to a "Sergeant" in our terms. He doesn't direct the seige towers, haradrim, trolls, or forces further back in the assault.

Book Gothmog
Mentioned, I believe, only once and we are told nothing about him except his is the #2 man in the assault. Race unknown.

I suspect he is NOT one of the nine or we would have heard more about it, and it is the Witch King that leads the armies out of Minas Morgul (and feels the presence of the Ring as Frodo and Sam are attempting to cross into Mordor). If I recall, ROTK specially states only the Witch King was there. And I would expect he would have his number 2 with him in a situation like that. Ergo, IMHO, not Nazgul.
