When using the AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D Lens on a DSLR the aperture is controlled by the camera instead of by the aperture ring. Turn the lens aperture ring to its minimum setting (highest f-number), then lock it in place using the aperture lock on the lens. You can then fully control the lens aperture on the D3000, D5500, and other DSLRs by using the dials on the camera - see page 70 of the D3000 Reference Manual for detailed instructions. FYI this lens will not autofocus on the D3000 or the D5500 as neither camera has a built-in focus motor. AF-S or AF-I lenses are required to autofocus on these cameras.
