Question Did not use Floor Joist hangers for shed floor

We are building storage shed 15x8 in the yard.

And We put concrete pier blocks and used 2x6 treated to build the floor frame as well as floor joist

Neighbor who is a fence builder said you did not need to use floor joist hanger just 16d galvanized nails is enough ...3 nails at every joint...

Now, I have already put floor plywood and nailed it on floor...

So, is my neighbor right? or I should use hangers?

and if I should use hangers how can I put hangers when I already put plywood.

Hangers are almost always better! might be ok without for a shed although a lot depends on how much weight is put on it. If you have enough access under the shed you can still install the hangers.
