"Il était" just like "il est" cannot be used before a noun preceded by a determiner. You have to change the subject to "c'":
- It is a nightmare = C'est un cauchemar
- It was a nightmare = C'était un cauchemar
- He is a good citizen = C'est un bon citoyen
- He was a good citizen = C'était un bon citoyen
