High-spin states in the doubly magic N=Z nucleus Ni56 have been investigated with three fusion-evaporation reaction experiments. New γ-ray transitions are added, and a confirmation of a previously suggested prompt proton decay from a rotational band in Ni56 into the ground state of Co55 is presented. The rotational bands in Ni56 are discussed within the framework of cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky calculations.
