Lots of reasons: Nosebleeds occur for a variety of reasons. In children, 90% of nose bleeds occur in the front near the nostrils, which is why pinching the nose helps stop it, since pressure is applied. In adults, it can also be posteriorly, so pinching helps in those instances. May need to see ENT for scope of inside of nose to evaluate for nasal mass and to get blood work to check if okay.
