Nicolas Hu?nh V?n Nghi (1 May 1927 - 6 May 2015) was a Vietnamese Roman Catholic prelate. He was Bishop of Phan Thi?t from 1974 to 2005.


Born in V?nh H?i, Saigon, he was sent to the Issy-les-Moulineaux Seminary in France to complete his studies and was ordained a priest in June 1953 at the Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. He then returned to teach in his native country and was named pastor of Gò V?p Parish (1961-1965) and Tân nh Parish (1965-1974).

On 1 July 1974, the Holy See appointed him Auxiliary Bishop of Saigon (present-day Ho Chi Minh City). On 11 August 1974, at the Notre-Dame Saigon, he was ordained Titular Bishop of Selsea by Cardinal Agnelo Rossi, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. On 19 March 1975, Father Nicolas was appointed Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Phan Thi?t. In 1979, he was officially appointed as Bishop of Phan Thi?t.

In 1993, he was named Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Ho Chi Minh City, due to poor health condition and then death of Archbishop Paul Nguy?n V?n Bình, until the installation of Archbishop Jean-Baptiste Ph?m Minh M?n in 1998. On 1 April 2005, Bishop Nicolas resigned due to age limit, and was succeeded by Paul Nguy?n Thanh Hoan. He died on 6 May 2015, five days after his 88th birthday, at the Bishop's Residence in Phan Thi?t.
