Check with VMware. They would need to provide their support statements for Nano and instructions to build a VM that runs in their environment.
You could try building the VHDX using the Microsoft procedures and then use VMware's tool to convert the VHDX to vmdk, but you still need a support statement from VMware as to whether or not they support this.
Or maybe they have produced their own tool for creating a vmdk of Nano server. Again, need to check with VMware.

1 - Your software can directly use a VHD or VHDX hard drive in the configuration of the virtual machine. So when you create it , you specify the file.
2 - Your software can't. You use a third part to transform the file VHD(x) to VMDK.
3 - You use a WinPe to configure and expand the file to the hard drive (WIM instead of a VHD).

With a vmware host, remember to add the OEM drivers packages
