Only if the compressor can build up enough pressure for the pressure
requirements of the nailgun. Assuming you can obtain the required pressure
and you've shot a nail, you're going to have to wait for the pressure to
build up again before you can shoot the next nail.
In reality, it would likely be faster for you to use a hammer and a nail
If it works at all, it will be V E R Y S L O W L Y. A portable air
tank would be a better solution for a few fasteners, then recharge the
air tank. The mini conpressors are NOT for continuous use and get very
hot even when run for inflating a sports ball, much less a car tire.

What gauge? I used a C-H 'power pal' (think that's what it's called) for
a little while with an 18ga.
As others have said, the compressor runs continuously, noisily, and gets
hot; but if all you need to do is to shoot a couple of (small) nails, it
may work, for some definition of 'work'.
Having said that, it was great justification to go out and buy a real
compressor; and I've since added to my air 'arsenal'.
not to mention that after you strip off the oversized plastic and get it
down to a manageable size, they make a great emergency pump for airing up
your motorcycle tires. If you should ever get a flat while on the road.
Best 12 bucks I've ever spent I think.
