Problems with 2005 Nissan Xterra

Hey! New here, but looking for advice on car! The other day I went to accelerate from a red light and as I was accelerating I noticed something felt weird. I had to stop at the next red light and when I tried accelerating that time, I was almost unable to get the car to move. It just revved and wouldn’t accelerate. I finally was able to press the gas enough to get it to go about 10-15 mph just so I could get it out of the road into a nearby church parking lot. This happened about lunch time. We left the car until around midnight so that there would be no traffic on the roads when we tried to move the car. When we went back it started right up and drove normally home. It did start to feel a little funny pulling into the neighborhood but overall it seemed fine after sitting. Ive heard that the 2005 Xterra is one of the worst model years for having transmission problems. Do you guys have any ideas as to what may be the issue?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
