Node version not available after specifying nodejs_version

This is my appveyor.yml

  image: Visual Studio 2017
    # node.js
    - nodejs_version: "6"
    - nodejs_version: "7"
    - nodejs_version: "8"

  - x64

  - node -v
  - npm install -g esy
  - esy install

If my build starts I get:

Build started
git clone -q --branch=master C:\projects\track
git checkout -qf 69ca15a431e157aec7d55383b7c18da020c70070
Running Install scripts
node -v

Why is the node version v4 instead of v6, 7 or 8 ?
