Abstract: Let $ p\geq 5$ be a prime number. We prove that the abstract commensurator of the Nottingham group $ \mathcal{N}(\mathbb{F}_p)$ coincides with its automorphism group, which is known to be a finite extension of $ \mathcal{N}(\mathbb{F}_p)$. As a corollary we deduce that the Nottingham group cannot be embedded as an open subgroup of a topologically simple group.
