Nothing in life is quite as confusing and frustrating as one's first attempt to place a Canon FD lens onto a Nex cam.  And, then if you leave it on the adapter for a few days you'll quickly forget how to reverse the process and get it off again!

But the Nikon Series E manual lenses (I have the 70-210) aren't complicated that way like Canon.  Their aperture ring controls the diaphragm without having to install the lens onto a Nikon cam or a Nex adapter.

Hence, it does appear that the Nikon lens of the OP may have a defect if the aperture ring does not open/close the lens optics even when not installed on a camera.
