Work settlement status was granted to it on June 6, 1933 by the Resolution of the Central Executive Committee of the Karelian ASSR, but it was demoted to a rural locality in 1995. When Kandalakshsky District of the Karelian ASSR was transferred to Murmansk Oblast in 1938, Nivsky became a part of the latter.
