O Allah verily I ask for ease during death, and forgiveness after death and pardon during the judgement, O giving one, O the giving one. 

May Allah grant you success

It is not allowed during obligatory Prayer (Salah) to add Rokoo' or  Sojood because it will invalidate the Salah. Reciting any of the four verses of obligatory Sajda is not allowed in obligatory Salah. If you do Sajda for reciting or listening to any of the four verses of obligatory Sajda, you Salah becomes invalid and you need to perform the Salah again.

Bismihi ta'ala

There are seven of our body parts that need to be fixed on the ground when we do sujud in our wajib prayers. 

Tip of our two toes of our two feet.
Our two knees.
Our two palms. 
Our forehead. 

The eighth, which is our nose is mustahab, to be placed on something that we can do sajdah on, like a turbah. 

In the case of your nose being raised from the ground, or on the ground, but on something that is not valid to do sajdah on, then there is no problem and the prayer will be valid. 

And Allah knows best.
