Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi there,

I'm using Nominatim to draw the Danish states/regions on a map, however one of the regions is missing? The region missing is "Region Hovedstaden", but it simply does not exist.

Who should I get in contact with to fix it? Is it a bug or is the data simply not available on Nominatim?

I cannot answer on the nominatim question. But if you are just drawing regions on a map it might be simpler to take the data from the OSM database directly You could use Overpass Turbo to filter the desired states/regions and download them.

The region definitely exists in OSM https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1320608 , so it isn't a a data issue per se.

Looking at detail results on nominatim.openstreetmap.org it definitely doesn't seem to be indexed at all, so this is likely an issue for the nominatim maintainers.
