In this paper the spectral evolution during the long pre-maximum stage, which lasted from August to December 1995, is reported. Emission lines of H I and Fe II were prominent in the early stage. Most of the lines were accompanied by P Cygni type absorption components. The emission lines gradually weakened with time and the absorption components developed. The mean of the blue-shifts of the absorption components with respect to the emissions was about -126km/s in September and -96km/s in December 1995. Some lines of Fe I, Fe II, Y II, Sc II, Ba II, etc. appeared in the later stage. All emission lines, except for Hα, once nearly disappeared in November when the nova slightly brightened to V≃8.6. Some emission lines appeared again several days before the beginning of the final rise to maximum luminosity, then a pure absorption spectrum of F type supergiant was seen on the maximum of V≃7.1 at the middle of December. The absorption components of Si II lines at 634.7 and 637.1nm showed fairly different profiles from those of the other metallic lines, which suggests a complicated gas motion in the atmosphere. The distance and the absolute magnitude at maximum are estimated to be 2.95±0.7kpc and MV(max)=-6.1±0.5, respectively. The mass of the white dwarf in this system may be about 0.58±0.07M.
