I deployed the icehouse three node setup with neutron. My question is that if we want to increase the storage for our cloud not by adding the compute node by adding the NAS storage so it can be done.

If you mean increasing block storage by attaching NAS, then you will need to attach the NAS storage to the controller node (which i assume is the one you have cinder on as well) . When you add it raw , you need to use it to extend the volume group that cinder uses ("cinder-volumes" in many default installations) and basically that will extend the storage.
