Role in the Books
Nott is first seen as one of the Death Eaters to appear after Lord Voldemort's rebirth. He tried to profess his loyalty to Voldemort before being interrupted.
Nott is injured in the first skirmish in the battle at the Ministry, presumably by falling shelves, to the extent that Lucius Malfoy instructs the other Death Eaters there present to leave him.
When Lord Voldemort, or Tom Riddle as he is then known, is seen in Albus Dumbledore's memories returning to Hogwarts to apply for the job of teacher of Defence Against the Dark Arts, Dumbledore asks him about his "friends" waiting for him in Hogsmeade. Nott is one of the friends mentioned by name, along with Mulciber, Antonin Dolohov, and Evan Rosier.
Outside the series
Nott originally had a scene in which he and Lucius Malfoy discussed Death Eater business off camera, while their sons Theodore Nott and Draco Malfoy discussed Harry and Albus Dumbledore. The author mentions that while she tried to fit the scene into two different books, it didn't work well either place and so was laid to rest.
