SSR questions regarding pulling data from MongoDB

So, I got a REACT-App website, just to find out it isn’t working for SEO… not able for Facebook to pickup on meta tags, and search engines don’t see content or meta tags that well.

Solution?

Convert the website into Server Side Rendering.

Question:

I am connecting to a MongoDB database pulling some information that is not really changing much… Could the SSR interfere with the pulling of the data I am taking from MongoDB? I would think no? Basically, I want to make sure I can pull the data from MongoDB as I am doing now, and then make sure it can be presented as SSR… is that OK? Not shooting myself and on the foot and creating another unknown surprise?
