Solved I want to host bhyve- and VirtualBox-VMs on same machine. Is that feasible?

Background
I have two old (hardware) production servers, one which runs bhyve VMs and another which runs virtualbox VMs, which are to be replaced -- ideally by a workhorse.

Question
Can a single FreeBSD server be made to stably host both bhyve and virtualbox VMs?
(It occurs to me that it might be a problem because I had bad experience running VirtualBox together with VMware Workstation on a Linux host a few years back.)

Given that this is feasible, do you think of any pitfalls I should be aware of, in terms of: hardware-setup, software-configuration and maintenance.

I understand that I could just give it a shot. However, I am concerned that even if it would work as of now, it might not be stable in the long term.

Nope. There can only be one hypervisor active, and nesting isn't supported.
