Hi
Have you bought a subscription.
I suppose what you get from jorgicio-overlay is the client.
You need this to connect to the server.
But it is a paid service I think....
Furthermore according to this https://support.nordvpn.com/Connectivity/Linux/1047409422/How-can-I-connect-to-NordVPN-using-Linux-Terminal.htm
You need to have openvpn installed.Then you need to download the .ovpn file for nordvpn from the address given in the link and then connect using
Code:

openvpn <providef-file>.ovpn


You also need to have support for tun/tap ifaces enabled in the kernel.
Please look this
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/OpenVPN
:D

Of course I have my own subscription!

I already have connection via openvpn and it's working but I thought using ebuild from jorgicio would be simplier
I can log in to my account but connecting doesn't work.

In this case, you should post your issue here:
https://github.com/jorgicio/jorgicio-gentoo-overlay/issues
so jorgicio can fix for everyone using his overlay.
