    "On the first week" or"in the first week"

    Hi
    Could you help me with these combinations of ordinal numbers and a noun after that? I'm kind of confused.
    1. On the first day/ at the first day/ in the first day
    2. On the first night/ at the first night/ in the first night.

    Thanks a lot.
