It would help if you asked an actual question.

my question is why not found address of osm_type "node" in this request

Why was Google Maps searched with city name, but Nominatim without the city name? I see results for https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/ui/search.html?q=soler+5300%2C+Buenos+aires

Nominatim has no option to filter by type (node, way, relation). All results are ways because in that area house numbers were added as interpolation lines ("from X to Y").

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/319368380 is likely the best result. North there is house number range around 5400, south there is a house number range around 5200 and lower. As a human I would guess near the park somewhere 5300 should be. But I can't see a building or anything that would have a 5300 house number. In other words as far as I see there exists no building with that house numbers, a geocoder system can only guess. Google Maps is better at guessing.
