Seems messy but I think it works.
(((((((5+2)+9)/2)-7)*1)*6)/6)=1

(2*5-9)*(2*7-((1+6+6)) = 1

(2+5+9)/2-7-1+6/6 =1

details:

= 16 /2-7-1+6/6
= 8 -7-1+6/6
= 8-7-1 +1
= 1 -1 +1
= 0 +1
=1

Little less complicated solution-

(2-5+9+2-7-1+6)/6

That works as well.

this equation works to.

2*-5+(9*2-7)*1+6-6

-10+(18-7)+0

-10+11=1
