nicer - comparative. My boss is nicer than someone else.
nicest - quantitative. My boss is nicer than all the other bosses.
much nice - poor English. You would never describe something as 'much nice'.

Nice (the correct answer). My boss is a nice boss, but there is no comparison being made to any others.

I hope this is what you meant.
