relocating a duplex outlet

I need this outlet raised 14 inches for the installation of an OTR microwave.

Can I run the new wire throught flexi conduit up into the above cabinet; wire nut the connections and cover the old box opening and install a new metal 1 gang box in the cabinet and plug the microwave in?

Yes, assuming that what you mean by "cover the old box opening" is an easily removable cover, and that the box remains there to contain the splices.

Yes an easily removed full cover will be placed on the existing box (which will contain the splices). So it sounds like I am on the right track.

Sorry for not being more clear
