Let be a finite connected complex and a fibration over a compact nilmanifold . For any finite complex and maps , we show that the Nielsen coincidence number vanishes if the Reidemeister coincidence number is infinite. If, in addition, is a compact manifold and is the constant map at a point , then is deformable to a map such that .
