Because we under Windows and all Cygwin binaries built as console apps and
show console window.

You may check it yourself:

  Win+R nohup yes RET

It is not easy to hide console. You need to build GUI program that will hide
console of next running program or something like that. My knowledge is very
limiting regarding Windows.

Under Unix nohup detaches app from controlling terminal so you may leave
terminal session and program isn't terminated by SIGHUP signal.
