Merge two table on two columns with OR operator

Looking to merge two table on two columns A and B. However, I want to do the following: 

Try to match on column A and ONLY IF column A is empty, try to find a match in column B. 

What I have now:

#"Merged Queries2" = Table.NestedJoin(#"Merged Queries", {"A","B"}, Activities, {"A","B"}, "Activities2", JoinKind.FullOuter),

 

Looking for something like (but including the is null for column A condition):

#"Merged Queries2" = Table.NestedJoin(#"Merged Queries", {"A"||"B"}, Activities, {"A"||"B"}, "Activities2", JoinKind.FullOuter),

 

Is this possible in PowerBI?
