"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

The experience of nibbana at the first stage does not entail any ceasing of the khandhas. In fact they arise and cease as always but citta momentarily contacts nibbana ( which is the element which doesn't arise and thus doesn't cease), after that other processes occur all entailing rise and fall. It is a high level of wisdom and obviously very different from something as deluding as a moment of pure ignorance ( like a momentary idea of nothing appearing)

This is from the theravda perspective and is not me making any boast - I haven't personally experienced nibbana - in case one of the moderators is going to again ask me whether i claim some high attainment like a stage of vipassana.

As I said you can read the summary in van Gorkoms Abhidhamma in Daily life, starting @ chapter 23.
Nibbana[-dhamma] is a synonym in that context for asankhatta-dhamma which you can find f.e. in Dhammasangani at many places, usually translated as "uncompounded element".
