We have performed NMR measurements under pressure in UCoAl with a quantum critical endpoint of the metamagnetic transition from the paramagnetic phase to the ferromagnetic (FM) phase. 59 Co-NMR sensitively detects the evolution of the internal field caused by applying the external field. The metamagnetic field H m increases with increasing pressure consistently with other experimental methods, accompanied by the suppression of the magnetization in the field-induced FM phase and the magnetization jump at H m . The loss of the NMR signal on approaching the QCEP indicates the development of the spin fluctuations.
