no,nickel spoon cannot be used to tir a solution of silver nitrate solution.
2AgNO3(aq) + Ni(s) ------> 2Ag(s) + Ni(NO3)2(aq)
Thus nickel displaces silver from silver nitrate solution.
Here the reduction potential of silver is less as compared to zinc.Therefore,,it displaces silver from its salt solution
