You should recreate the nfsroot from scratch using
# fai-make-nfsroot -fvN

After that, you can use this command to check if you initrd included
the firmware
$ /srv/fai/nfsroot/usr/bin/lsinitrd /srv/fai/nfsroot/boot/initrd.img-4.19.0-14-amd64|less

Since you use -k when calling fai-make-nfsroot, only additional
packages are added. I never use -k, I always recreate the nfsroot.
