Will code developed on Arduino Uno work on Arduino nano?

As far as the code language itself, yes.  The only differences would be if you're trying to use hardware functionality that isn't there.  Uno has more pins available than the Nano, so you might have to make sure you're using pins that are available on both.  

Code usually even transfers to other MPUs... like ESP8266 and ESP32.  Again, it's mostly about what are the common capabilities of the hardware.

You can test it yourself, just goto Tools/Board and change Uno to one of the Nano's. Then simply re-verify your code. If it compiles clean then the answer is YES for that code.
