I just bought Nikon D7000 on last 2 days and found that every photo that uses ISO from 1600 will have 3 hot pixels at the same position.
Then I took the photo with lens cap and test with dead/hot pixel tester, here is the result.

On ISO 100-400 not found any dead/hot pixel on every shutter speed (tested from 1/125 – 2”)
ISO 800 s1/8 3 hot pixels
ISO 1600 s1/125 found 1 hot pixel
ISO 1600 s1/60 found 1 hot pixel
ISO 1600 s1/8 found 3 hot pixels
ISO 3200 s1/125 found 3 hot pixels

Firmware A 1.02 /B 1.02 /L1.002 and not have the problem of hotpixel on video mode.

The question is my camera is acceptable or should I return to the Nikon Shop?
