Hi
In the position above White is checkmate, of course.
The white king can't capture the knight at g4 because it is protected by the knight at f6.

The fact that the knight at f6 is pinned by the rook and can't move means nothing in this position because a king is not allowed to capture a protected piece. The knight is protected and that's it.
Read the chess rules.
I hope this helps.
