The very/super-heavy nuclei area is a unique laboratory in the nuclear chart for the fundamental study of the atomic nucleus since excitation and decay modes are governed by the competition between the short-range strong nuclear interaction, long-range Coulomb repulsion, surface effects and the properties of individual quasiparticle states. For such studies, a wide scientific program has been launched at the FLNR Dubna laboratory with the emergence of new experimental setups such as the SHELS separator [1] and its focal plane detection system, GABRIELA [2] . Thanks to the high α, γ and ICE efficiency detection, some really new results on nobelium isotopes will be presented. Namely, the first γ and ICE spectroscopy of the $^{256}$No nucleus [3] and the revisiting of the $^{254}$No level scheme with an indication of a possible shape coexistence/superdeformed state.
