Nikić, born to father Ilija and mother Radojka (née Tadić), started his career in the lower leagues with FK Modriča and NK Zvijezda Gradačac before joining FK Željezničar Sarajevo. Although he was an excellent winger, he became famous for his funny character and truthful nature. Maybe he is not one of the all-time best FK Željezničar players, but surely one of the most popular ones. He is often a guest on various TV and radio shows because of his stories about himself being silly in all kind of strange situations.
His biggest playing success was being the member of the famous FK Željezničar squad which under the guidance of Ivica Osim reached UEFA Cup semifinals in the 1984–85 season. But Nikić didn't play the semifinal match against Videoton because in December 1984 he moved to Greece where he stayed for four seasons. In the 1984–85 season, he played for Egaleo F.C. making 19 appearances scoring 3 goals. During 1985–86 and 1986–87 seasons he played for Aris Thessaloniki F.C. and scored 12 goals in 53 league matches. At the end of the 1986–87 season he moved to Aris' fierce rival PAOK and played only 9 league matches in season 1987–88 without scoring any goals. After that season, he came back to FK Željezničar in 1988 where he stayed until the middle of the 1990–91 season when he moved to NK Čelik Zenica. He stayed at Čelik until 1992 when he moved to FK Borac Banja Luka. In 1993 he ended his playing career after leaving Borac.
His son Branislav is also a professional player in Greece.
