After search my street in Nominatim I found the street's postal code into place:postcode tag. I think this tag is no longer valid but I can't find the postal code in addr:postcode nor postal_code.

It is my mistake and I must do the changes by myself in my OSM database or is there some way to OSM guys do the changes in the official database?

Fonseca, Niterói in OSM's Nominatim instance doesn't list this postcode.

When you click on https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details.php?place_id=160054687 you will see that this object does not have an OSM id. This means that the node is imported in the Nominatim database from another data source. You will have to contact the Nominatim maintainers to change that.

I just noticed that you can even see it on your screenshot, since there is no value in the OSM column.

Hum... understood. Makes sense. May be some postal code public database import. It would be good if I could get my hands on it... Well, thanks anyway. Do you want to answer with this comment?

This is the Nominatim guys response: https://github.com/twain47/Nominatim/issues/609. But I'm still don't getting what was happen.

According to lonvia Nominatim just calls it place:postcode altough it comes from the addr:postcode tag. I guess it just searches for the nearest addr:postcode if no other postcode information is available and no postcode boundary has been mapped. Better ask these questions in the github issue.
