Checked out the band, song and noted the recording / release dates:

Released November 24, 2004
Format CD
Recorded November 2003-March 2004 at
Tempputupa Studios, Finland

AFTER Horner scored and released "The Missing". There is simply no way Horner heard that before since that song didn't exist at the time. However, the song was recorded the same month the film was released in theaters.

In other words, Nightwish copied Horner, or it's coincidental.
