You have the nuts when you have the best possible hand available with that board. So for example, in the screenshot I posted up above, when the flop fell I had a King-high straight. There were no two pocket cards that any other player could have had that would have beaten me at that point.
When the board changes (as another community card is dealt) that can change and, as in the example, my hand may not be unbeatable any longer.
