Ok have an odd to me situation. In.stalling new thin 4" led with remote metal box

Ceiling has what looks like standard 4"round electrical boxes in celing

They have LED can like fixture that bolts right to above box to mimic can lighting. Was new home and they are throughout house.

We installed a wood faux beam that covers 2 above boxes.

We removed orig led fixture

Romex is used

Can we simply pull wire from ceiling box into led fixtures metal box? This way connections are done in fixtures box and wire just passes through orig ceiling box. Will use proper box connections.

Romex covering is removed from wires in above box as it is in all boxes.

or do we have to install cover and pigtail to new led metal box??

Its about a 4" run from box to new led fixture box.

Thanks
