Nehemiah among the Scrolls

It has been a working assumption of scholars of the Hebrew Bible for a long
time now that Ezra and Nehemiah constitute one book.

Yet a fragment of Ezra has been identified at Qumran- but Nehemiah is as
absent as Esther.

So can it be said that the evidence from Qumran shows that Ezra and Nehemiah
were separate works;
or is this simply the argument from silence rearing its ugly head once again?
