You may be able to force the nut on the threads, but you can be assured of damaging and or destroying something. If the metals are particularly strong, you could destroy the spanner. That's the least likely circumstance. More likely, you'll cut new threads into the nut or cross-thread the bolt by attempting to secure with the wrong size nut. If the form of ...
