He was also acting editor of the newspaper Folkeviljen in 1922, while Sigurd Simensen was imprisoned for revolutionary activity.

Johansen took over as sole editor a few weeks later.

From 1924 to 1932, Nilsen was the editor-in-chief of Fremover in Narvik. He chaired the regional party in Nordre Salten, and was a member of Narvik city council. At the 1927 national party convention he was the secretary. In 1931 he was indicted for breach of the Penal Law § 222, in that he had published the names of four strikebreakers. Defended by Theodor Broch, he was acquitted. The editorship in Fremover was resigned in April 1932, but he eventually became chief librarian in Narvik from 1935 to 1937. In 1933 he was acting editor of Folkeviljen while Alfons Johansen was a member of Parliament. He later moved to Lillestrøm where he lived the rest of his life.
