You should separate your subdomains if you have wordpress under blog.domain.com … it is better to create a new subdomain like cloud.domain.com
Plus you need to create another mysql database separately for nextcloud with a normal (limited) mysql user, especially for nextcloud.

I had some problems installing NextCloud. I followed these instructions to install ownCloud.

ownCloud is a file sharing server that permits you to store your personal content, like documents and pictures, in a centralized location, much like Dropbox. The difference with ownCloud is that it is free and open-source, which allows anyone to use and examine it. It also returns the control and security of your sensitive data back to you, thus eliminating the utilization of a third-party cloud hosting service.
