Nil geometry is one of the eight geometries of Thurston's conjecture. In this paper we study in Nil 3-space and the Nil metric with respect to the standard coordinates (x,y,z) is gNil₃=(dx)²+(dy)²+(dz-xdy)² in IR³. In this paper, we find out the explicit parametric equation of a general helix. Further, we write the explicit equations Frenet vector fields, the first and the second curvatures of general helix in Nil 3-Space. The parametric equation the Normal and Binormal ruled surface of general helix in Nil 3-space in terms of their curvature and torsion has been already examined in [12], in Nil 3-Space.
