The pilot reported that when he landed he didn't pull the nose up and the airplane landed on the nose tire. The airplane bounced up. The pilot didn't get the nose up again, and the airplane landed on the nose tire a second time and blew the tire. The pilot had difficulty steering the airplane and it veered off the runway. The nose wheel went into some soft dirt and the airplane subsequently nosed over.
