Dear ehsan targholi

If you do not compute unoccupied states in your nscf calculation (either by explicitly set the nband value, or by using occupation='smearing'), they 
will not magically appear in the subsequently calculated DOS. If you have computed the unoccupied states instead, you have legitimate reasons to 



P.S. Please, add always somewhere in your posts your scientific affiliation.
