The sentence just says "president" not "the president".

I don't think it matters in this context but president doesn't have to refer to a head of state. It can refer to a president of an organisation for example.

Not a hundred percent certain, but I think "nevertheless" should be either at the beginning or at the end of the sentence.

Is president not a profession or why is "a" wrong?

"Nevertheless the woman is a president." not accepted

Same question. "The woman is president nevertheless" sound so much weird, and I would never say that. On the other hand, "The woman is nevertheless a president" sounds natural, but its rejected here. That's how I get along with English, yet I can't be sure as I'm not a native.
