: Nobody ever believe that neutron star can be orbited by any planet. Since neutron stars are formed by explosion of supernova. The planet orbiting around the neutron star is formed after the supernova explosion or survived the event.

I do not believe that any planetary body would survive the 'event'. As to new planet(s) forming; there would probably not be enough matter left in the system.
