In case anyone is having the same issue I reverted that line back /bin/nologin and executed these lines:

echo "/bin/nologin" >> /etc/shells
echo "/usr/sbin/nologin" >> /etc/shells


it is now working

That is really strange then =) When you change that line in /etc/passwd you do not change password, so it should not affect authentication.

Oh. Congratulations. But for some reason I had those lines by default. Maybe some OS-specific problem (mine is CentOS 7).
