They were deliberately left off the target lists for 20th air force firebombers partly with the "testing" of the atomic bomb in mind. In fact Nagasaki wasn't even the the first choice target, Nagasaki was added to the target list after Kyoto was removed, because of its cultural significance, and on the raid itself it was only a backup for Kokura.
Prior to the atomic bombing, Nagasaki had been bombed nine times.

All relatively minor raids. Nagasaki was relatively unimportant in the greater scheme of things except to the people who lived and died there, it wasnt even a particularly good test site for the bomb due to its geography.

Not sure the point you are making?
