Fine by me

There's a phrase I've now heard in two places which I think is an idiom.

First: Vividred Operation episode 3, 16:41 spoken by Wakaba.

Second, Mouretsu Pirates episode 26, 06:47, spoken by Witherspoon.

It sounds to me like nozomutokoryo. In Vividred Operation Coalgirls translates it as "Fine by me." In Mouretsu Pirates they translate it as "Bring it".

I get that nozomu means "wish" but what's the rest of it?

1 I think you mean nozomu tokoro, meading "the desired place", as in you would be in my desired place.

2 Verb+tokoro is either (present tense) "about to verb" or (past tense) "just verbed", so "about to get what (someone) wishes".
