Nightmare Mode is a set of random challenges that increase a mission's difficulty.
Mission nodes under the effects of Nightmare Mode are marked with a swirl symbol.
The missions are selected randomly and change every day. Not every planet will have a nightmare mission on every single day.
Having completed several planets will thus speed up the completion of this achievement.
The game randomly selects missions for Nightmare Mode from any planet (except Mercury), provided you have completed all the missions on the given planet.

Just unlocking all the missions is not enough, you have to actually complete them all, this means you have to complete the Archwing missions as well.

To unlock this achievement you can replay the same mission 10 times.

Possible effects of Nightmare mode are:

No shields - self explanatory
Timer - missions are on a 5 minute timer, 1 kill will add 5 seconds to the timer
Health Vampire - you will lose health every second, killing an enemy will restore part of your health
Energy Drain - you will lose energy every second
Lethal explosive barrels - Exposive barrels will deal a lot more damage
Longer Reload - reload time is increased by 50%

In addition to these effects there is also a 50% chance that of low gravity taking effect. This will effect your movement and also the enemies.

The enemies on these missions will be high level, i recommend you only take lvl 30 Warframes on these missions and lvl 30 weapons as well.
Because of their powers and abilities Warframes like Rhino, Loki, Valkyr and Saryn makes these missions a bit easier.

I do not advise playing these missions on your own, teamwork makes them a lot easier to complete.

Nightmare mods are a possible reward for completing these missions.
These mods have dual effects (for instance higher fire rate combined with higher critical chance)

*edit*
credit to umpa lumpa 1234 for this:

Nightmare alerts might show up as well, these to do not require you to complete all mission nodes on a planet.
All the other Nightmare rules do however apply.
Waiting for these alerts to pop up could take a long time since they're completely random.
Here you can check past and present Nightmare alerts: http://goo.gl/Tmif7z
