Description

In 2018, LHCb recorded ~210 microbarn$^{-1}$ integrated luminosity of PbPb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV. In this talk, we present the first LHCb measurements of open heavy-flavour and J/$\psi$ productions from this new sample. The momentum resolution of the detector allows to probe the boundary of peripheral and ultra-peripheral collisions by comparing hadro-produced and photo-produced J/$\psi$, but also to measure mesonic and baryonic open-charm productions in peripheral collisions, down to $p_T$=0, where the performance of the detector is optimal.
