In this paper, we study a two-parameter family $\{\varphi_{\mu,\nu}\}$ of three-dimensional diffeomorphisms which have a bifurcation induced by simultaneous generation of a heterodimensional cycle and a heterodimensional tangency associated to two saddle points. We show that such a codimension-$2$ bifurcation generates a quadratic homoclinic tangency associated to one of the saddle continuations which unfolds generically with respect to some one-parameter subfamily of $\{\varphi_{\mu,\nu}\}$. Moreover, from this result together with some well-known facts, we detect some nonhyperbolic phenomena (i.e., the existence of nonhyperbolic strange attractors and the $C^{2}$ robust tangencies) arbitrarily close to the codimension-$2$ bifurcation.
