Hope you're planning on installing some breaks as that lockring is due to come out sooner or latter and at a moment when you'll be needing it most (i.e. during braking).

i tought i was save because both the cog as the lockring are with thread, but if it's not save then i will install a singlespeed "cassette" and brakes (or i will look out for a track hub)

the lockring is supposed to be left-hand threaded. That one is probably from a bottom bracket so it's right-hand thread. It will came out together with the cog and at a time when you'll least expect it...
