There isn't a way to change your nickname for a single channel (IRC
doesn't support such a concept at all) - by using "/nick" you're doing
the same thing effectively as changing the username that you use to
connect to the server.

Given this, is there a reason that you need to change your nickname
after connecting instead of just connecting using the desired
username?
