OK the wheel must be corroded to the hub, this isn't uncommon

if it won't shift with some blows to the rim with a rubber mallet then I'd suggest replace the nuts but do not torque them up and take the car for a short (*****) and brake sharply

if the wheel loosens off you'll hear a ' clonk' as the wheel shifts
