You're on the right track with oxidation. Try cleaning the contacts in the body and on the lens with contact cleaner, and let it dry. Remove the battery, and clean the contacts inside the camera.

I've read recently of a slew of older Nikon amateur film cameras from the late '80's to mid-'90's that have electronics that have failed. Their prosumer cameras (8008, N90, F100, etc) don't seem to be affected as much as their amateur cameras (N2000, N60, N65, etc). You could try cleaning the contacts of both the camera body and lens - as well as the battery compartment, but if that doesn't work, you may be out of luck. The good news is that you can pick up another N65 for less than ten bucks at most camera shops, both online and brick and mortar.

Does the shutter operate when the back is closed? (In other words, does it expose the film?) If so, don't worry about it. If not, it may need service -- or it may be set at such a high shutter speed (1/2000, for instance) that makes the shutter open and close so quickly that you can't see it move.

Hi. Pay careful attention to the way the end of the film fits through the take-up reel. Open the back (empty) and give the wind knob a few twists. That will tell you which way it is turning. Put the end of your film through the slot in the take-up reel so itd winds onto itself as it advances. There's usually enough extra unexposed wound onto the factory reel that it won't cost you and pix at the end of it. Pull enough out of the cassette to be sure your winding-load position is really going to hold when you advance. Good luck.

If the shutter blades get bent they are hard to straighten out. Better to find a local repairman or you could do more damage to the shutter. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

You can't take the door off. Not without disassembling the camera.
Some system cameras has a small spring-supported pin that holds the door. This is to make room for stuff like film magazines as shown here:

Press down and slide one way or the other. It's generally held by two pins that slide into hole slots and lock in place

Sounds like the aperture control actuator ring in the camera body is not opening the aperture diaphragm blades fully a repair quote and decide if a different body upgrade may be a better option
