so after 3days i reopen the air layer and add fertilizer.

will the above process affect the air layering success?

Welcome!

I'm a little confused about why you thought you should add fertilzer. There are no roots to fertilize. In fact, fertilizer may burn whatever new tender roots that attempt to grow.

The part of the branch you are attempting to root is being fed by the parent plant until you cut the umbilical cord.
