Migrating dotnet application progressively to elixir/phoenix

Hello All,
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I have some questions and I’m hoping to hear feedback from the group.

I have a web application built using dot net core for the back end API running on kestrel and react+redux for the front end application running on node with nginx as the reverse proxy.

I want to migrate the application slowly in stages. As the business logic to migrate the dotnet is going to be time consuming, I want to first move away from node. Can I run the front end react app using phoenix?. i.e., the phoenix application will be consuming the api ? If this is an option, I can slowly migrate the backend in the next 6 months to a year. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Thank you

What do you currently use node for? Why not just serve the compiled react app directly from nginx?
