Hello everyone ,
Is It a good idea to connect ( P300 OR 7731) PTMP with switch directly and connect the APs with that switch ?

No problem at all.

Just make sure you do channel planning and physical seperation of 5m if they are going to on the same pole or pretty close to each other..

Why not? If there is no possibility for a connection to be lost that's quite a good idea.

If you have APs and a PtMP going through a switch, on the bridge side I suggest setting your APs to Root only or disable meshing. Otherwise if you have other APs nearby, you will find the APs mesh and it might cause a loop which will bring down the bridge.
