Nimitz wore two hats - he was the head of the US Navy in the Pacific, and, he was a Theater Commander. The Pacific was divided into two Theaters of Operations. The Central Pacific theater, and all Allied personnel in it, were under Nimitz. Army General Douglas MacArthur commanded the Southwest Pacific Theater of Operations, and all Allied personnel there. From time to time Nimitz had army troops under his command, in his role as Theater Commander. Similarly, a few times MacArthur had Marines (which are a part of the US Navy) and always had some naval forces under his control.
