In this paper, we consider the existence of a ground state nodal solution and a ground state solution, energy doubling property and asymptotic behavior of solutions of the following fractional critical problem
 $\begin{equation*} \begin{cases} (a+ b\int_{\mathbb{R}^{3}}(|(-\Delta)^{\alpha/2}u|^{2})dx)(-\Delta)^{\alpha}u+V(x)u+K(x)\phi u = |u|^{2^{\ast}-2}u+ \kappa f(x,u),\\ (-\Delta)^{\beta}\phi = K(x)u^{2}, \quad x\in\mathbb{R}^{3}, \end{cases} \end{equation*}$
where
 $a, b,\kappa$
are positive parameters,
 $\alpha\in(\frac{3}{4},1),\beta\in(0,1)$
, and
 $2^{\ast}_{\alpha} = \frac{6}{3-2\alpha}$
,
 $(-\Delta)^{\alpha}$
stands for the fractional Laplacian. By the nodal Nehari manifold method, for each
 $b>0$
, we obtain a ground state nodal solution
 $u_{b}$
and a ground-state solution
 $v_b$
to this problem when
 $\kappa\gg 1$
, where the nonlinear function
 $f:\mathbb{R}^{3}\times\mathbb{R}\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$
is a Carathéodory function. We also give an analysis on the behavior of
 $u_{b}$
as the parameter
 $b\to 0$
.
