Is it true that the pronouns on and nous can be used anytime we want to indicate we? I’ve heard that using nous is more formal, but is it wrong?
This question relates to:French lesson "On = we, one, people"

Indeed you are right, the French will use 'on' for 'nous' all the time that is why teaching it is so important....
In formal written form, 'nous' will be more elegant...
Hope this helps!

so they can be interchangeably but french speakers use ''on'' on daily basis. while ''nous'' is used mostly for very formal and written form?

In a nutshell yes....
