Nirvana is usually interpreted as a state of bliss. However in the more Orthodox of schools in Buddhism they believe that once you achieve “Buddahood” you realize and know that everything is an illusion and you achieve emptiness. At that point you sort of fade out of existance. The “lower schools” incorporate heavens and hells, each of which are temporal and not eternal. Some lower schools do have eternal heavens and temporal hells.
