So we can say that the body and soul of [the human nature of] Christ was created at the incarnation?

I heard in a discussion that since we say in the Nicene Creed that Jesus Christ is "begotten, not made", we can not say that he was made.

...We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation,
he came down from heaven:...

But like you explained well, it is His Divine Nature that wasn't made, His human nature was "created" (His body and soul) at His incarnation in the Virgin Mary's womb, correct ?

Please clarify.
