Well for a start, you cannot use the same flue. Each appliance needs to have it's own.

As for the water side, it depends upon your existing plumbing arrangement. The wood burner will probably do no more than heat your hot water, so if this is correct, and your tank is gravity fed it may be possible to connect it in tandem with your oil boiler.
