Removing the tub is a huge undertaking, I would avoid it at all costs. You will have limited access to the area between the tubs if you remove the large hose that leads from the tub to the pump. The video at the link below shows how the tub is removed.
Removing them will not get you any other access. You will need to take the hose off the tub bottom for the best access beyond total disassembly. Can you see with a flashlight where the nail is stuck?
I would not run it until you remove it or you risk damaging the plastic outer tub. The front of the machine is going to need to come off, there really is no way around it. It is going to be a pain no matter with it being installed as it is. It will need to be pulled out and the dryer removed to get the top panel off.
Honestly, given the amount of disassembly involved, unless you can get at it through the removal of the hose, I would not remove the tubs. You can remove the front panel easy enough to get the hose off but beyond that will be quite involved.
