2nd order polynomial fitting with NaNs

I want to fit a 2nd order polynomial to my data
x=(1,256) y=(1,256)
Only 40 cells from each side of the y array include values, the rest are NaN. So far i have used the polyfit() function but it does not work when the y array contains NaNs. Another function is interp1() which works properly but the fitting methods are limited (no polynomial option).
Are you aware of any other function that is suitable for this problem?

Try indexing your data points to your non-NaN-points
Let's just work on an example:
%%just generating data
x = 1:10;
y = x.^2 + randn(size(x));
y(4) = NaN; %I introducce a NaN in y
%%getting indices where y is valid (not NaN)
idxValid = ~isnan(y);
poly = polyfit(x(idxValid),y(idxValid),2);
plot(x,y,'xr','DisplayName','Data points'); hold on;
plot(x,polyval(poly,x),'DisplayName','Fitted'); hold off;
As you will see: this fits only the non NaN data.
