Cobalt (II) Nitrate is acidic, and Sodium Hydroxide is an alkali, so they will undergo neutralization reaction. Sodium Nitrate will form and Cobalt Hydroxide will precipitate. It is possible that some Cobalt Hydroxide can undergo thermal decomposition into Cobalt oxide and water due to exothermic neutralization reaction.
