For me it made a huge difference moving the disc up and out with most the pressure between the index/middle knuckles like Robbie, it was something MJ told me as well when I asked him about his fan grip. What that did was really focus the grip on the fast/clean pivot/exit of the disc further out from my center and get rid of slack I had in my grip with it lower and deeper into the palm/thumb base. Higher in palm also gives you more nose down.

can you show the difference in disc position? when you say, " moving the disc up and out"???
I struggle with consistency on grip.

Are you sure that grip is the reason for your nose up throws?

Just look at how Robbie holds the disc in the video.

Consistency would suggest you have balance/weightshift and/or sequence issues.
