What is the difference between Adonai with kamatz on nun, vs patah on nun?

It seems that Adonai with a patach on the nun is is a plural noun masters.. Adoni with a hirik on nun is my master..

But i've heard that Adonai with a kamatz on the nun is a completely different thing, and is a name of God.

Is that right?

I'm a bit confused over Adonai with a Kamatz

Thanks
