Norwegian [ j ] vs [w]

Hello,

I am doing a Norwegian phonology project where I am supposed to provide minimal pairs or minimal sets to prove the existence of different phonemes in Norwegian and I was wondering if anyone knows two words that are exactly the same except for the contrastive [ j ] sound versus the [ w ] sound.

Example
:
/m~n~ŋ/:               
[
ˈlɑm] ‘lamb’            
[
ˈlɑn] land ‘land’            
[
ˈlɑŋ] lang ‘long’
