This is a quote from the AIX nohup man page. I'm sure whatever your using will say much the same thing:

To run more than one command, use a shell procedure. For example, if you write the shell procedure:

neqn math1 | nroff > fmath1

and name it the nnfmath1 file, you can run the nohup command for all of the commands in the nnfmath1 file with the command:

nohup sh nnfmath1
Actually I hope the man page for your UNIX / Linux explains it better - because that description was complete gibberish!
