In this paper we study the nonlinear elliptic problem involving nearly critical exponent $ (P_\varepsilon ): -\Delta u= $ $ |u|^{4/(n-2)+\varepsilon}u$ in $\Omega$, $u = 0$ on $\partial \Omega $, where $\Omega $ is a smooth bounded domain in $\mathbb R^n $, $n \geq 3 $ and $\varepsilon$ is a positive real parameter. We show that, for $\varepsilon$ small, $(P_\varepsilon) $ has no sign-changing solutions with low energy which blow up at two points. Moreover, we prove that there is no sign-changing solutions which blow up at three points. We also show that $(P_\varepsilon)$ has no bubble-tower sign-changing solutions.
