Nietzsche is not rejecting the possibility of a noumenal world; he merely declares it to be without any effect. What really matters to the human being is the phenomenal world, and this world depends entirely on our human head. It is therefore thanks to the existence of our consciousness that the phenomenal world is born, the only world that matters to us. It is the human being that makes its world, this world that is “so marvelously variegated, frightful, meaningful, soulful, it has acquired colour—but we have been the colourists: it is the human intellect that has made appearance appear and transported its erroneous basic conceptions into things” (HTH I §16).

Indeed the thing in-itself that may lie behind the phenomenal realm is regarded as insignificant, precisely because it is outside of our reach. This is not the case in Kant.
