My Zen teacher ask me Show me that you have a Buddha nature and I got frozen. I know that I have a Buddha nature at least I think I know because if I really know how I cannot show my Buddha nature. I am really trapped.

You are maybe carrying around a concept of Buddha Nature. However much you might have understood, it is not the actual experience of Buddha Nature. Whatever can be understood is not Buddha Nature. You are using Buddha Nature freely every day without needing to understand it. If you think you understood, it is a concept. When you are empty minded, like a dog or a cat, when you simply live your life as a human being, for that we need to practice over and over again in our daily life.
