Please find below the answer:
In simple words, oxidation is just the addition of oxygen to another molecule.
When the atmospheric nitrogen is converted to ammonia by some specialized group of prokaryotes like cyanobacteria, Azotobacter (free-living soil bacteria), Rhizobium (symbiotic bacteria) etc. the process is known as biological nitrogen fixation. This process is useful to fulfil the necessity of nitrogen for agriculture.
