Greetings. This is most likely onychomycosis or fungal infection of the nail. You would need to see a qualified dermatologist near you and then get evaluated / confirmation of diagnosis - followed by treatment for finger nail fungus for atleast three months. You could even get the nail removed. With anti fungal treatment, in any case new nail will come. Hope this helps. Warm regards
