'Nie mam nic powiedzieć' - contextually at least, could this mean "I do not have to say anything" ?

Na przykład, czy mogę powiedzieć: mam wrócić do domu o ósmej (I have to go home at 8 o'clock)?

W tym sensie, można zmieniać 'mieć/musieć' bez problemów?

In positive sentences you can In negative it changes and nie muszę=I don't have to; nie mam (czegoś robić)= I shouldn't do this, I'm not supposed to do it to a bit like doesn't have to <> must not

mam wrócić do domu o ósmej = I have to come back home at eight nie mam wrócić do domu o ósmej- (weird) Nie mam wracać do domu przed ósmą= I shouldn't come home before eight ( my roomate has a boy around ) Nie mam wracać do domu po ósmej = I shouldn't come home after eight (either I have to come before eight or altenatively, if it's after eight I'm not supposed to go home )

What is wrong with the sentence "Nie muszę nic powiedzieć"? It was marked as incorrect.

Something is definitely missing from this sentence... what did you want to write?
