In the title ferrocene derivative, [Fe(C5H5)(C9H8NO)], the dihedral angle between the enenitrile group and the substituted cyclopentadienyl ring is 71.2 (1)°. The cyclopentadienyl rings of the ferrocene moiety are arranged in an eclipsed conformation. The hydroxy group, and the corresponding methine H atom, are disordered over two sets of sites with site-occupancy factors of 0.744 (4) and 0.256 (4). An intramolecular C-HO close contact is observed. In the crystal, O-HN hydrogen bonds form a C(6) chain along .
