No. You would effectively be saying "no he isn't isn't married", a double negative. The simple response would be "No, he is married".

These kinds of questions are called "tag questions". You can google this phrase and get more examples on how to use and practice them.

A: He isn't married. B: No, he isn't. He's married! Some possible corrections: A: Is he married? B: Yes, he is. He's married! Didn't you see his wedding band? A: He isn't married. B: (disagrees) Yes, he is [married]. He's married! Didn't you see his wedding band? A: He isn't married. B. (agrees) You're right. He isn't. He's single and available. Lucky for us!

No, it is not correct. -He isn't married. -Oh yes, he is. He's married!

He isn't married. Yes, he is married!
