"The Nigerian patient who was admitted on December 6 has been cured of Ebola," the Dutch public health institute RIVM said in a statement.
The soldier was infected while working as a peacekeeper battling the deadly disease in Liberia.
He was the first Ebola patient to be treated in the Netherlands and will stay at a military hospital until he can return home, the RIVM said.
Ebola has killed more than 6,900 people, almost all of them in west Africa.
Liberia tops the number of fatalities at 3,290 deaths but Sierra Leone earlier this month overtook it as the country with the most infections.
