The problem we were having with the Nucleo boards and ESP8266 were unrelated to yours. Can you check that you are using the latest version of the library? We confirmed that works fine with your hardware configuration. Also please check that your shield is properly installed. If we remove the shield, we see the same exact error message. So perhaps it's not seated properly or is broken.
Once your shield is working you can use get_mac_address() to obtain the MAC address as shown in the example. Documentation for the WiFi class is here:
