‎We show that a nonautonomous discrete-time dynamical system (NDS) with the ergodic shadowing property is chain mixing‎. ‎As a result‎, ‎it is obtained that a $ k $-periodic NDS with the ergodic shadowing property has the shadowing property‎. In particular‎, ‎any $ k $-periodic NDS on intervals having the ergodic shadowing is Devaney chaotic‎. Additionally‎, ‎we prove that for an equicontinuous NDS with the shadowing property‎, ‎the notions of topologically mixing‎, ‎pseudo-orbital specification‎, ‎weak specification property‎, ‎and ergodic shadowing property are equivalent‎.
