Special instructions have to be followed to get Nexus working with proxy maven.oracle.com. A number of users have reported this issue and is likely due to some change at the remote oracle site.
From last night, this has stopped working and a 404 is returned when trying to download artifacts. When content validation is switch off you see the following html being returned.

Josh Fedke You uploaded a screenshot with a different url - are you saying that the url you are using works?
The url that this ticket relates to is: https://maven.oracle.com:

Just to clarify:
If you try to download an artifact from maven.oracle.com using a browser, Oracle recently (last few days) started redirecting to https://www.oracle.com/content/secure/maven/content/<<maven URI>> For this reason, I tried to configure a new repository that proxies the new URL that oracle is redirecting to. I also updated nexus.properties twice. First time I tried this:
second time I added a couple more domains:
Strangely, this seemed to work for many of the artifacts earlier today. However, it was still getting stuck on wl-client.jar. But even this configuration stopped working after we started digging into it (renaming local .m2 and trying different TTL's/Max Ages).

I sent feedback direct to Oracle via the Send Feedback button on the oracle maven documentation page using my personal sonatype email address today at 1:30PM ATL.
I told them about the reported problems - and that Apache Maven without even using Nexus Repository Manager is broken.
I asked them if they had any information to share with us, then send that info to support at sonatype.com in case they have made permanent changes the community should be aware of.

I have been in contact with Oracle regarding this issue since Thursday (the company I am working for has a support contract with Oracle). A few hours ago the support engineer who works on my ticket sent me the following information:
I will post any relevant updates from Javed Salim also here since it seems that there exist no official resources (e.g. Oracle Blog, Oracle Issue Tracker, ...) where users without an Oracle support contract can get updates about the state of the Oracle Maven repository.

Our Nexus 2.14 can now proxy the Oracle maven repository fine. It was broken the entire last week. Thx

The maven oracle proxy is also working for me - looks like Oracle has fixed the issue with the https://maven.oracle.com.

An Oracle engineer has confirmed that they have applied a fix over the weekend.
