It is possible that Nagato was alive, or something of the sort. Think about it - when Edo-tensei is used, it brings back the person in the form that they were before they died (I suppose...) Edo-Madara looks as old as he did when he fought Hashirama... I didn't believe that Nagato was alive for that time period, but how else would edo-Madara know of Nagato?

A bit early to call that, when we were just introduce to splitting.
