I've done it with a D3100 which is a similar camera.

Try,
* Tripod
* Manual Exposure
* F5.6
* Shutter Speed 30 seconds ( Bulb and minutes if you have a remote shutter release cable about £25 in UK) and they come with leads to fit quite a few Nikon cameras, plus an extension cable.
* High ISO
Modify ISO if too bright, then F#

No doubt I will get shot down in flames, but experiment in Manual, forget the presets.
Try , Try and try again till you have something that suits.
In the UK it is finding a night without cloud cover.

You could also try light trails from cars.
Tripod,Manual Exp,ISO 100, F22, Shutter 30 seconds

Good luck
