Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You should use and firm pressure by pinching the nose till the bleeding stops.

Usually may take 10-15 minutes of application of pressure.

Oxymetazoline nasal spray also can be used to stop bleeding.

If no sign of stopping in next 15-20 minutes, better to call 911 and paramedics.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
