Nantes is a beautiful place to visit 2-3 days max. You definitely have to wander around in Brittany, because there are so many beautiful places there : coast, villages, nature, castles... From Nantes, you can go with public transport to many other places.

Pornic, Le Croisic, on the Atlantic coast. Vannes town in Morbihan, Gulf of Morbihan. Rennes, and then Dinan, Saint Malo, Mont Saint Michel. You can find a short description of these places there : …free.fr/index.php/en/excursions.html

this is the web site for the trains in France

the TGV is a high speed train between major cities - it requires reservations, tickets are available 90 days before departure and prices increase closer to departure date

the TER are regional trains that have fix prices, with no reservations required as there is no seat assignment.

then you have tour buses if you want to visit some of the chateaux in the Loire valley; or Mont St Michel. MSM requires train and local bus travel as it is away from cities/towns

Have a look at the Paris forum you will see lots of questions about day trips to MSM from Paris which will give you an idea of the local buses to take after the train.
