The Joker in this film is also based off of Batman #1, when he first debuted in 1940 or 41. Anyway, in that issue, the Joker had no origin. That first issue was the Joker coming out of nowhere to begin a regin of terror and the Dynamic Duo had to fight him. No Red Hood. No chemical bath. The origin was tacked on later. Nolan is using elements of "The Killing Joke", but he's relying on Batman #1.

According to Nolan he is using the origin of The Killing Joke to some degree in this film because he has mentioned that that origin specifically of the Joker is integral to his Joker just that he does not want to make the film all about the Joker's origin.
