Hi, I �m not a native speaker but I have read that when you use neither ... nor, it is preferable to put both the neither and the nor immediately in front of the parts of the sentence they refer to. In my opinion the second sentence is not exactly wrong, but the first one is more acceptable.

Both are okay AFAIK.
