These codes indicate there is a lean fuel mixture. Check first for vacuum leaks. If none are present, most likely the air / fuel sensor is bad or there is a wiring issue to this component. Also, there was a technical service bulletin (TSB) on this vehicle which relates to this problem. I do not have access to Nissan's archives, but if you contact a dealer, they should be able to help.

Hi, I installed a new one, but without wire connector and I welded the old one oxygen sensor. The heat damaged the sensor or no?

Use a scanner with a live data feed and you can watch the O2 sensor change voltage, if this is evident it is working ok.
