The Bavarian derby was action-packed and feisty and saw Bayern register their first draw in the Bundesliga.
Mario Mandzukic got things off on a bright note with a third-minute goal but Markus Feulner scored through a swerving strike that Manuel Neuer could only get a weak hand to at the Frankenstadion.
Nuremberg had a hard time following Timo Gebhart's dismissal as he picked up a second yellow card for accidentally elbowing Schweinsteiger's cheek but still managed to go close with some good set pieces by Hiroshi Kiyotake.
But Schweinsteiger felt that his side should not have wasted several chances that came their way and they should have grabbed a second goal in order to prevent Nuremberg from drawing level after the restart.
"It wasn't easy. We had some good openings, but the final ball went astray and we made some wrong decisions," the Germany international told fcbayern.de.
"We definitely should have scored a second. That would have calmed things down a lot, but then we went and gifted them a goal."
Schweinsteiger was heavily critical of Bayern's opponents as well, saying:"Nurnberg can't do it any other way, especially not in the derby.
"Personally, I don't know what you can call it. They always tried to influence the referee and were provoking all the time with time wasting, staying down on the floor, with small things which had an influence.
"We also committed fouls, but they always went for the body.
"That's not something I take kindly to. I have had enough injuries in the past and it wasn't easy for the referee today. It wasn't any fun today [Saturday]."
Nurnberg goalkeeper Raphael Schafer reacted to Schweinsteiger's criticism by saying Bayern only have themselves to blame for failing to win at the Frankenstadion.
"It's not as if they were playing against Real Madrid or Barcelona - if you can't find a way to win it, then it's easy to just stand there afterwards and say we were provocative," he told Sky television.
"A squad full of millionaires should be able to find a way to win a game like this, especially with an extra man."
Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, on the other hand, was content with the point and is not too worried about the chasing pack. Luckily for the Bundesliga runner-ups, Schalke, their nearest challengers, suffered a 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon as well.
"It's not the end of the world. It's just not possible to win every game. We can live with the draw," Heynckes told reporters.
"After taking an early lead, we failed to make it two or even three. Obviously, we conceded the equaliser at a bad moment psychologically."
Goalkeeper Neuer, in particular, was unhappy at having let in a goal as he added: "It was a tough one for me, because Feulner's shot wobbled and my line of sight was blocked. He hit it very well.
"We're annoyed about dropping two points here."
Bayern play Valencia in the Champions League at the Mestalla on Tuesday and first-team regulars Mario Gomez and Phillipe Lahm were not included in the starting XI in a bid to keep them fresh for the European outing.
