from a design or UI/UX perspective:

I have a homepage, the header is dark and so is the navigation bar. Background of the nav is a dark color; logo and text is white.

On sub pages, the Nav is inverted, meaning the background is white and the text color and logo is a dark color.

I received some feedback that this is supposed to be a nogo, but I haven't seen anything on that topic that supports my stand nor for the other side.

What do you think?

It's not consistent, and consistency is often mentioned as one of the key points in UX design (e.g. here). You don't want your users to think that they ended up on another site, unless they did; compare e.g. the dark navigation bar of this site:

UX.SE navigation bar

with the light one of Stack Overflow:

Stack Overflow navigation bar
