Ceiling Box Code

I've got a old 3 3/4" round pancake box used for a ceiling light fixture. I won't need the box or ceiling light after I use it to run wire to a new sconce location. I want to get the box out of the ceiling and convert it to a J-box. My question is: when I when I make the box a J-box, can I locate the box in the attic above (accessible) on top of the plywood covered attic floor? Would this satisfy current code? Thanks in advance

As long as the box in the attic remains permanently accessible and you maintain six inched of wire in each box then you can do this.
