Re question: I’m not going anywhere.

Correct answer given is with ‘nulle part’ at the end. No problem with that but what is wrong with ‘n’importe où’? I’ve looked at the discussions and can’t find a definitive explanation for appropriate use of one over the other. Doesn’t ‘nulle part’ mean nowhere rather than anywhere? Merci as ever for guidance.

n'importe où -- anywhere, (lit.) "not important where"
nulle part -- nowhere

Je vais n'importe où. -- I am going anywhere (i.e., to no place special)
Je ne vais nulle part. -- I am not going anywhere (i.e., nowhere)
