Item URL is not correct when Office Web Apps is enabled

When we enable Office Web Apps on a SP2013 library, the Item URL in Nintex  for that item changes to be the OWA URL. (WOPIFrame.aspx). This then causes us issues when trying to call the document URL using a web service.

Is there another way to get the Correct Item URL and still have Office Web Apps enabled on the library?

Cheers
