    In math you can do that but in language (English) it is considered poor style. You can use other forms of punctuation within your brackets to separate out your ideas or create a hierarchy, the most common being commas or a dash.

    you can have a doubly parenthetical phrase, but it tends to be complicated to do that. It is better to write things in an alternative way that avoids the possible confusion. I wouldn’t consider it agrammatical, just less than ideal. I will admit to sometimes doing that.
