Look here for more info https://www.google.nl/search?q=nexus...gcgP&gws_rd=cr, unlocking through your carrier is the easiest way i guess but they`ll probably charge you for it.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

All nexus 5 phones are carrier unlocked.

Are you sure it is locked?

Although we cannot say for definite that all Nexus 5's are carrier unlocked (Some Nexus 4's turned up locked), this will actually be the very first locked Nexus 5 I have come across. Have you tried another SIM?
Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

If for some reason, it is locked (it really shouldn't be), it shouldn't be too hard to flash the factory image (see the return to stock thread)

I didn't see any carrier lock Nexus 5. It should not lock for any reason.
