Come to think of it, many of its policy are more resemble those of the leftist socialism (or even communism itself). Things like universal healthcare policy, land and income redistribution etc.

Even the party name itself is National Socialist of German Worker Party. If socialist is leftist then how come the nazi is extreme right?

Left and right are pretty fuzzy terms; for example, left-wing may be used to describe anyone from Stalin to Gandhi to Obama - each of whom is pretty different from the others. There is, however, pretty strong consensus that they're opposites. Often, the left-right spectrum refers to the economic spectrum, with communism placed on the left and capitalism put on the right. The Nazi Party is cast as right-wing because it was opposed to communists and other leftist groups. [http://history.stackexchange.com...] Also relevant is Hitler's execution of the party's socialist/leftist leaders in 1934; the "socialist" in NSDAP has little more meaning than the "democratic" in The Democratic People's Republic of (North) Korea.

It's a mischaracterization either way, extreme left or extreme right. Fascism usually includes a mixed economy, with an authoritative trend on civil rights.

There was no redistribution; universal healthcare was introduced by the conservative Otto von Bismarck decades before the Nazis even existed, and Hitler didn't like it.

Even the party name itself is National Socialist of German Worker Party. If socialist is leftist then how come the nazi is extreme right?

The addition of "National Socialist" was a marketing tactic, one Hitler opposed. There was a left-wing faction of Nazis that was actually socialist, but they were marginalized in 1926 (when Hitler finally took a side) and eliminated in 1935 with the coup against the (socialist) SA leadership.
