Definitive explanation of phenomena as nonexistent. Before reaching the end of the path one claims that there is nothing at the end of it. Such a view is premature, insincere and dishonest.

And what is meaning? Meaning vs no meaning, both share the same illusive nature of solidity. Both are fake and people get deluded by saying like "true meaning".
Like you said, there is no definitive idea. If there is no definitive truth there is no grasping for ideas in search of truth. Nihilism has its truth, eternalism has its truth , that's why both are false.
Emptiness has no rocky bottom. Nothing to cling to. No truth, no here or there, no now or later.

Mixing the concept of nihilism with Tathagata is dangerous. Don't throw out the baby with the bath.
