Landed with a flat tire

Had an interesting flight yesterday. I landed on a flat nosewheel in a Cessna 172!
I earlier had landed at St. Elmo airport (Alabama) and then took off. Didn't see any problems. But when I touched down back at Brookely Field (KBFM).....
As normally done, I touched down on main gear first, then slowly lowered the nose....Whoa, this is not suppose to happen! Had to steer using brakes. Nonetheless, I landed safely without dinging up airplane!
