English We report muon spin rotation (μSR) and infrared spectroscopy experiments on underdoped BaFe1.89Co0.11As₂ which show that bulk magnetism and superconductivity (SC) coexist and compete on the nanometer length scale. Our combined data reveal a bulk magnetic order, likely due to an incommensurate spin density wave (SDW), which develops below Tmag≈32  K and becomes reduced in magnitude (but not in volume) below Tc=21.7  K. A slowly fluctuating precursor of the SDW seems to develop already below the structural transition at Ts≈50  K. The bulk nature of SC is established by the μSR data which show a bulk SC vortex lattice and the IR data which reveal that the majority of low-energy states is gapped and participates in the condensate at T≪Tc.
