If using nsel, using location, can be tricky if the plane is inclined. Perhaps split the geom. so there is a a face/area on that inclined plane, and use then, asel,to select that face (say by number), followed by nsla,s,1 to get all the nodes on the selected face.
See the chapter about selecting and components (chapter 9 in mechanical apdl guide):
Possibly also by using components, and then commands like cmsel.
