Did you reboot after this step? If nouveau is loaded, the nvidia module
cannot be loaded, too, obviously.

The nouveau module probably cannot be unloaded due to kms things, so
you'll have to reboot to switch the driver.

There should have been a debconf notice during installation saying
something about the nouveau module being already loaded and a reboot
being required.

The nvidia driver installs a blacklist configuration that should prevent
nouveau from being used the next time you boot.
