On some phones Android replace the recovery image with the stock one during the reboot, so follow these steps in such case:

You probably started from a bad custom rom, do not use that, download one of the stock rom from here, PD2 doesn't requires root to be unlocked, while if you chose PG1 or PH9 after flashing them use the root instructions we posted here.

Stock Official PD2 (6.0.1) Click to Download
Roms below this warning needs root to be unlocked:
Stock Official PG1 (6.0.1) Click to Download
Stock Official PH9 (6.0.1) Click to Download

To flash the stock rom follow these instructions:

I just install the custom Rom from your link above "PH9" and yet the phone still restarts and reboot after about 45seconds to 1minute.
Please help me,cant use my phone again.
The phone was on PH9 when i try to root it using your rooting method above.

We haven't custom roms fr Note 5 here, what one you refer?

Also, when following the root instructions remember to use the files we provide here (Odin, TWRP and SuperSU), do not use other versions from other sites because we tested the procedure with these versions (you can find them at the Pre-requisites links at the bottom of the root post).

Also, in order to check your problem, since my Note 5 was on PG1 I just updated it to PH9 and rooted it with our instructions/files, it works fine here, it does not reboots, so it's indeed something you're doing differently like using roms/files from other sources. This is a screenshot from mine, as you can see it has PH9 and it is rooted with SuperSU 2.68:


If you still have problems flash this PH9 stock rom:

Then wipe the phone from the Settings menu.
The root it using the first post instructions and files.
