I don't think this should be categorised as duplicate for nautilus as this is in fact gnome-shell problem on Wayland
Even without gnome-tweak-tool
One can use dconf-editor or use gsettings command in Terminal
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons true
which is exactly what gnome-tweak-tool GUI does when you flip ON to show Desktop icons
Note that log off and then login under GNOME on X11, the Desktop icons are there
Back to GNOME on Wayland, nope.

While it seem strange the "nautilus" application is responsible for displaying the desktop icons so the resolution here is technically correct (even though I miss desktop icons personally).
