What Timmyjoe has pointed out is correct. I think the Df is a very good choice if you want to use older Nikkors in F-mount (AI and first generation AF). For Nikkors in S-mount (rangefinder) you'd need a mirrorless camera.

That said, just this week I have been testing a friend's Sony Alpha 7 with some of my F-mount Nikkors via an adapter. It's basically an extension tube, so you can mount your F-Nikkor further away from the sensor of the Alpha. I understand there is also an adapter to put F-Nikkors on the mirrorless Z6 and Z7.

Nikon S, S2, S2 black dial, S3 black (vintage), S3 2002 Limited Edition, SP 2005

Nikkor 3.5cm f/1.8, 35mm f/1.8 (2005 reissue), 3.5cm f/2.5, 5cm f/1.4, 5cm f/2, 50mm f/1.4 (2002 reissue), 10.5cm f/2.5 and 13.5cm f/3.5
