In brief: Pressure on Location

The bleeding is typically from capillaries and in an area called kiesselbach’s area, just past the body near the nares.
Look it up on google images. Sitting, keeping your head up, working to calm/relax, & sustained pressure on the area (pinching nose, side to side) for long enough without moving/letting up to check (usually ~5 minutes, timed, long enough) will typically stop the oozing.
