Finally I found why NT cannot erase the flash. It is related to the power supply of NT (I am using power from NT).
If I connect a 12ohm resistor from power on NT to the VCC on the flash, I can erase the flash without any issue.
I looked at the datasheet, when erase a flash it might draw max 100mA from the power. Without resistor, I think the power to the flash is not stable.
Anyway, no need to release another version to program this chip.
Simple solution is to use a small resistor. I even put a multi meter between (20 am current) and it also works.
I found only need to use it when erase. When program it is not needed.

Final working resistor value for erase and write is 6ohm.
