In the title complex, [Co(C7H4IO2)2(C6H6N2O)2(H2O)2], the CoII cation is located on an inversion center and is coordinated by two monodentate 2-iodo­benzoate (IB) anions, two nicotin­amide (NA) ligands and two water mol­ecules. The four O atoms in the equatorial plane around the CoII cation form a slightly distorted square-planar arrangement, while the slightly distorted octa­hedral coordination is completed by the two N atoms of the NA ligands in the axial positions. The dihedral angle between the carboxyl­ate group and the adjacent benzene ring is 22.3 (3)°, while the pyridine ring and the benzene ring are oriented at a dihedral angle of 84.59 (13)°. Intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonding occurs between the carboxyl­ate group and coordinated water mol­ecule. In the crystal, N—H⋯O, O—H⋯O and weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into a three-dimensional supra­molecular network.
