choosing the right flash

Hi. I am new to Nikon, I was from Canon.
Sorry for this dump question about the flash.

I heard that the flash system from Nikon is a lot more advanced than Canon's. I was using a 3rd party flash in Canon. However in Nikon I am thinking if Nikon's own flash is needed to utilize its full potential.

So can a 3rd party flash works the same way as the Nikon flash? What is the difference? And could you give me some advice on which flash to start with?
Thanks.
