Why does Nick feel it is important to give a biography of James Gatz/Jay Gatsby at this point to “clear this set of misconceptions away,” even though he learned the facts much later?

I think that Fitzgerald wants to give the reader some context into Gatsby's actual past. So far Gatsby has remained an enigma and the author is wanting to build his character a little more.
