My daughter has been suffering from frequent coughing and sneezing since last 6 months. Her pediatrician advises regular nebulizer. But our parents say, nebulizer is not safe and reduces immumity. Is it true?

NO. Nebulizers are safe and have no impact on the immunity. On the other hand the cough and sneezing episodes may reduce and your child health and growth will improve as she may fall less sick.
