"Wij zien nu de lichten" should be correct. "Win" will not count as a typo, since it is another existing word in Dutch.

That doesn't sound like the right word order. "Wij zien de lichten nu" would be correct, though.

Both "Wij zien nu de lichten" and "Wij zien de lichten nu" are correct.

If you insist. As a native speaker, I'd still frown and think you were reciting poetry if you said the former sentence, though.

The most natural way to say it is still "Nu zien we de lichten."

I'm a native speaker as well and I'm certain that all three are correct. Please don't confuse learners by promoting the word order you prefer to a rule.
