Add Windows Server 2016 DC in very old domain (2003)

Hi, I need to add a Windows Server 2016 as domain controller.
Currently there is just one DC: Windows 2003 R2.
Forest functional level is: Windows 2000.
First question: can I safely raise this to Window Server 2003?

Second: is it possible to add Windows Server 2016 as DC?
If not, should I add a third server with 2008 , raise forest functional level to 2008, demote the 2003 DC, and then add Windows server 2016?
Thank you
