Pf sense box should be directly after ISP and before wireless router ... then you can set wireless router to just AP mode. Personally I would avoid double NAT if it possible, less headache down the road.

i don't want to keep it the esxi box online 24/7 due to its power consumption thus the firewall only for my nextcloud and other vm's as i ssh into it remotely.

I don't recommend putting PfSense on a VM. If you really want to use it, get a cheap 2nd hand PC and trow in 2 port NIC and run it from there.
