Harry's Nimbus 2000 was destroyed by the Whomping Willow following a Quidditch match against Hufflepuff. The match was the first Harry played during his third year at Hogwarts (November 1993) and took place in Chapter 9 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Harry fell of his broom when dementors guarding the school invaded the Quidditch pitch. The severe weather conditions meant that his broom was then blown into the dangerous tree.

What does nimbus 2000 mean other than Harry Potters broomstick?

The term was invented for the Harry Potter series. I suppose that the name "nimbus" is derived from nimble - "quick and light in movement or action".The term was invented for the Harry Potter series.

Why did Harry break and throw the Elder Wand away?

Actually, that was something exclusive to the movie. In the book, Harry tells Dumbledore's portrait, "I'm putting the Elder Wand back where it came from." There is no indication that snapping the wand and throwing it off a cliff is putting it back where it came from. Either way, Harry does so to break its power. The wand's power comes from each owner of the wand being defeated (usually by death) so that the defeater/murderer may obtain the wand and its powers. By leaving the wand alone and living a natural life, Harry would break that pattern.
