Well,.................? Nailing into that stuff is like drilling a hole. The nail is not gonna hold very well. You need plywood or OSB, something with a grain for the nail to grab.
Also I've got more bad news for you. As far as I know any hardwood 5" or wider gets nailed as normal, plus needs to be glued too. Check the installation instruction first. What brand do you have?
