migrating esxi 5.5 hosts with nexus 1000v to vsphere 6

I got all my hosts on esxi 5.5 all on nexus 1000v but I have built a new vcenter 6.0. now I need to migrate these hosts - disconnect them and add them into new vcenter.

so this is what I am doing

1. migrate all vms from nexus 1000v to vss

2. disconnect the host from the vcenter 5.5 cluster

3. add the host back into vcenter 6.0 cluster

but then I no longer have nexus 1000v and I am stuck on vss until I build a new pair of vsms on vsphre 6?

what do you think of this way?

The best way is to do an update of vcenter, and then upgrade the host. Finally upgrade the nexus 1000v.
