static nested class

Can we instantiate a nested static inner class with the help of an instance of outer class. For example

public class Exercise1 {
public static void main(String[] args){
MyOuter1 m = new MyOuter1();
MyOuter1.MyInner mi = MyInner(); // is it correct???
class MyOuter1{
public static class MyInner{public static void foo(){}}

Why or why not?

Don't just post your homework here. The bartenders won't answer such questions, and hopefully no-one else will, either.

Show some effort, propose an answer, ask for clarification of specific points etc. Then we'll happily help.

Betty Rubble? Well, I would go with Betty... but I'd be thinking of Wilma.
I agree. Here's the link:
