Even if it is only a test, such a small metallic system calculated only at 
Gamma is going to be problematic.
If the wave function optimisation converges, it is going to give rather 
inaccurate results.
There is an inconsistency between functional (PBE) and reference functional 
for D3 (revPBE)
Ni might be difficult to handle due to magnetism.
The number of added MOS depends on the system size (i.e., density of states 
in the few eV above Fermi) and smearing temperature.  Tuning BETA might 
become necessary for hardy converging systems, but you should test first. I 
find that ALPHA 0.18 is large.
