105mm f/2.5 should be on the list. An old manual lens. I think it was used to take the famous Afghan girl portrait.

You need a wide angle 24MM, Normal 50MM 1.4 105 Macro Nikkor, 200-500 Zoom
Welcome to the forum
A6000 is a Sony camera, not Nikon

I would start with a 50mm 1.4 or 1.8 then build up and down from there. 85mm is good portrait. Then a 28-300 3.5-5.6 for an all around lens. 105mm has a good macro as does the old 200mm. I would try to build quality rather than quantity, meaning lenses that are historically known for sharpness and low light shooting. I am an amateur photography (35 years practicing) so you may get better ideas from the pro shooters. Welcome to UHH.

There is no such thing as the BEST NIKON LENS. They are all great, you just have to pick the right one for the right situation. A great photographer can make any Nikon lens the best Nikon lens.
