How to use the filter, before WordPress converts <!--nextpage-->?

The following construction does not work:

add_filter ( "the_content", function( $content ) {

  $content = preg_replace( "/(\<\!--nextpage--\>)/miu", htmlspecialchars( $1, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8', false ), $content );

  return $content;


Code just for example.
