You can't play Nightmare until you beat the game once. The game isn't terribly tough, but there are a few things you can do to make it easier.

First, unless you have an issue with playing games on Easy, pick the lowest difficulty for your first run. That way you can level your Skylanders up for the Nightmare run. Also, once you've finished that first run, there's an exploit you can use to level up your Skylanders' abilities... and you can do it for ALL your figures once you've beaten the game once. Look for that solution here: Solution for Spend That Loot! in Skylanders Giants Note that if you keep the save file separate, you can level up any new figures you get later.

A final note: each figure you own is like another life. You can beat the game on Nightmare with just the three characters from the starter pack, but when you die in a level you need another figure or you have to restart the level. While the game isn't overly difficult, it's a lot easier when you have a few more figures in your collection.
