The parameters of the $\sigma$-$\omega$-$\rho$ model in the relativistic mean-field theory with nonlinear $\sigma$-meson self-interaction are determined by nuclear-matter properties, which are taken as those extracted by fits to data based on nonrelativistic nuclear models. The values of the relevant parameters are $C_\sigma^2\sim 94$, $C_\omega^2\sim 32$, $C_\rho^2\sim 26$, $b\sim -0.09$, $c\sim 1$, and the $\sigma$-meson mass $m_\sigma\sim 370$ MeV, while the value of the calculated nuclear- surface thickness is $t\sim 1.4$ fm. The field system is shown to be stable, since the $\sigma$-meson self-interaction energy is a lower bound in this whole parameter region with positive c. On the other hand, the effective nucleon mass M* is larger than 0.73M, if the symmetry incompressibility Ks is assumed to be negative and the nuclear-matter incompressibility K0 is kept less than 300 MeV.
