-d, --nodeps
Skips all dependency checks. *Normally, pacman will always check* a
package’s dependency fields to ensure that all dependencies are
installed *and there are no package conflicts in the system.*

To me that sounds like it also disables conflict checking. (It's not in
the first sentence, I know) If that's not intended you should remove the
last part of that sentence (beginning with "and")
