Nonce is the number of transactions the source account has made so far starting from 0, not from 1, position is the number of this transaction (mined) inside the block.

  • Just to add, this of course isn't part of the transaction that you submit to the network. It's just the index of the tx in the list of transactions the miner includes in their block. – flygoing Jul 12 at 20:57
  • well, that's what I said "inside the block", I thought it was clear enough, maybe I should add the word 'mined' – Nulik Jul 12 at 22:38
  • This is such an underappreciated answer. Thanks! – noooooooob Nov 1 at 5:21
