MSI GF65 thin cannot install nvidia driver

I just brought MSI GF65 thin laptop (Intel and NVIDIA RTX 3060 Max-q GPU) and install Nvidia driver version 470 with ubuntu 20.04 kernel version Then run nvidia-smi command the error occurs that

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

Then I tried to use several ways to solve this but still did not work.
please see the log file.nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (343.4 KB)

Hope someone can help me solve this.
Thank you

The driver seems to be installed fine but you’re using an xorg.conf on a hybrid graphics system. Please delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf, reboot and create a new nvidia-bug-report.log.

Furthermore, you have kernel parameter “nomodeset” set, please remove that.
