The question, as @bmike suggested, really needs editing to make it clear what problem you are trying to solve. I’m going to guess from the fact that you wrote “Sierra” that you have an Intel-based iMac.

I suggest trying to boot the machine in Recovery Mode and reinstalling macOS from there. Let us know how that goes, and update your question when you can. Adding some screenshots for context might also be helpful.
