The $$gamma$$-radiation has been investigated produced by cold neutron capture in an enriched $$^{62}$$Ni sample. The 315 $$gamma$$-rays have been placed in the $$^{63}$$Ni level scheme of which 272 placements are new. We have determined excitation energies with 0.2-0.8 keV error and branching ratios of 62 bound levels in $$^{63}$$Ni, including 30 new levels. The Q-value of the $$^{62}$$Ni (n,$$gamma$$) $$^{63}$$Ni reaction amounts to 6837.75 (18) keV. A large-scale shell-model calculation has been performed and the energies of the low-lying $$^{63}$$Ni states are successfully reproduced. A mean-field statistical model calculation has been also made by using a self-consistent interaction between the Hartree-Fock + BCS method and the statistical calculation. The calculation result is consistent with the experimental level density of $$^{63}$$Ni.
