In short, I'd be buying a Panasonic body and Olympus or Nikon lenses.

Will they work together?

Nikon doesn’t make MFT lenses, so far as I know. All Olympus and Panasonic MFT camera bodies and lenses are functionally interchangeable. The only exception is for the older Panasonic MFT lenses with stabilization built into the lens. The stabilization system only works on Panasonic LUMIX cameras. All Olympus MFT cameras and all the newer LUMIX MFT cameras have the stabilization built into the body.

Just to clarify the language: Micro Four Thirds (MFT) and Four Thirds (FT) are related but different systems. FT is an older system not made any more. They use the same sensor size, but different lens mounts. FT lenses can be used on MFT bodies with an adapter, but MFT lenses cannot be adapted to FT bodies.
