Nailing hardwood floors is almost always useless, because if the glue is intact it will hold the planks but if it fails then nails won’t help – stepping onto different parts of a plank that it not perfectly glued will make the plank bend slightly and pull the nails out and it gets loose over a course of month. If you want some metal fastening – at least use wood screws, they won’t be pulled out.
