hmm that sounds bad dude, first don't try stuff you aren't sure of !
Second, you are lucky that you can access boot loader; most nexus become paper weight
here are steps to get it back to life.
1 ) download nexus root toolkit 1.80
2 ) select your device and ROM what was running on.
3 ) there are icon buttons first install drivers using first button.(Full driver installation guide etc)
4 ) then go to the button that is flash stock+unroot {make sure to check current status(soft bricked) }
5 ) then if you have a stock room saved, select that or choose auto( it will do all the steps it self )
6 ) it will download and install through boot loader mode
have fun
