It means that if I have 6 digits of numbers, it will redirect to the url
i've described

But if I have 5 digits of numbers, it's not redirecting to the URL.

The regexp pattern isn't correct. You shouldn't have spaces before
the "{2}" unless you really want to match two consecutive spaces.

Even without those spaces, this pattern would match urls like
"/news/123456/" (without "/title" and with a trailing slash), while
you said you need to match "/news/$id/title" instead. Also, if you
want to fade out the old url in the long run, you could use a
permanent redirect.

You probably want something like that:
rewrite ^/news/([0-9]{6})/title$$1 permanent;
