Is it possible to upgrade Windows 2012 R2 server running Exchange 2016 to Windows 2016?  It would be much more easier to upgrade Windows, otherwise we'll have to create a new Windows 2016 server to install a new Exchange server to migrate the mailboxes to.  

Thank you

No - Windows cannot be upgraded in place once Exchange is installed. You'll be in for a far smoother ride if you can build a new server and migrate to it.
