Hi. 

Have you tried walking out of the room for a couple of minutes every time he nips?

We put him in the hall he calms down for a while but starts again. As he has his big teeth now and he is biting harder

Hi and welcome (both of you!).

Putting him in the hall till he calms down won't have the same effect as you walking away. What he's trying to do is interact with you and get attention. If you walk away the second he nips, literally the very second so he can relate cause and effect, what he will (should!) understand is that he's in fact driven you away, which is the opposite of what he wants. By picking him up and putting him in the hall, the first reaction he's getting is being picked up and cuddled (his perception).
