They can be very tight. Stop now before you damage the nut.

At the very least, you need a good quality six-sided socket and a large breaker bar.
If that won't shift it, you will need an impact wrench with a matching impact socket.

I had to bring one particularly stubborn one to a local truck tyre specialist.
Ride bike there, remove sprocket cover, use huge 1" drive impact wrench
to remove 27mm nut.....

Once that was done, I tightened the sprocket nut to a more reasonable
torque, refitted the sprocket cover and rode the bike back home to change
the chain and sprockets. The nut was fairly easy to remove on the second
