        System.out.print("insert nim: ");
        NIM = input.nextInt();

Simply because int max value is limited to 10 digits. You can use long instead as you can add upto 19 digits. Listed below is the difference of Integer and Long max and min values.

Integer.MIN_VALUE: -2 147 483 648
Integer.MAX_VALUE:  2 147 483 647

Long.MIN_VALUE: -9 223 372 036 854 775 808
Long.MAX_VALUE:  9 223 372 036 854 775 807

In your code, just simply replace with the following.

// int NIM; -- you can replace it into long
long NIM;

// NIM = input.nextInt(); -- call method nextLong instead.
NIM = input.nextLong();
