A lot can depend upon what your subject is wearing and the background. A large area of white/light color or black/dark color can confuse the metering systems of the camera and flash. Yes, there are two exposures computed, one for the ambient light and the other for the flash.

A sample image might help us see the exact problem and help to explain what happened and what you would need to do to fix the problem.

You will get more help in the Nikon Speedlight and Lighting forum. Also look at Nikon CLS Practical Guide by fellow Nikonian Russ MacDonald and the Nikon TTL Flash Metering System post, it has an example of overexposure when there is a strong ambient light.
