Is this sentence grammatically correct?
"I don't think you're wrong nor I'm trying to tell you what to do"
Thanks in advance.

How about "Neither I think you're wrong not I'm trying to tell you what to do"?

I believe that your sentence is grammatically correct if you change the order of some words:
"I do not think that you are wrong, nor am I trying to tell you what to do."
Here is a somewhat similar sentence from A Grammar of Present-Day English by Pence & Emery:
"I have no inclination for such an undertaking, nor do I have the time."
And here is another example (I forget the source):
"Dumas did not disagree, nor did he seem at all bothered."
That's really helpful. Thanks a lot for your answers.
