It will go around the nail but opposite the current? Is that correct?

The magnet field does not point in the same direction as the current. You find the direction of a magnetic field using the right hand rule. Wrap the fingers of your right hand in the direction of the flow of current, your thump will then be pointing in the direction of the magnetic field.
