The existence of the “nine worlds” is mentioned in passing in a poem in the Poetic Edda.
The nine worlds are believed to be:
Midgard, the world of humanity
Asgard, the world of the Aesir tribe of gods and goddesses
Vanaheim, the world of the Vanir tribe of gods and goddesses
Jotunheim, the world of the giants
Niflheim, the primordial world of ice
Muspelheim, the primordial world of fire
Alfheim, the world of the elves
Nidavellir/Svartalfheim, the world of the dwarves
Hel, the world of the eponymous goddess Hel and the dead

Lyrics (Old Norse):
níu man ek heima, níu íviði, mjötvið mœran fyr mold neðan.

jörð fannsk æva né upphiminn,
gap var ginnunga,

níu man ek heima, níu íviði, mjötvið mœran fyr mold neðan.

Lyrics (English translation):

Nine worlds I knew, | the nine in the tree. With mighty roots | beneath the mold.

Earth had not been, | nor heaven above,
But a yawning gap

Nine worlds I knew, | the nine in the tree. With mighty roots | beneath the mold.
