Are you using a C-clamp? Put the old brake pad on the piston and attach the c clamp, one side on the pad the other side on the back of the caliper and tighten the clamp. The nipple doesnt need to be open, your just introducing air into the system, when you compress the piston it forces the fluid back into the resovoir so no need to open the bleeder.
