In this paper, we first introduce a monotone mapping and its resolvent in general metric spaces.
Then, we give two new iterative methods  by combining the resolvent method with Halpern's iterative method and viscosity approximation method for  finding a fixed point of monotone mappings and a solution of variational inequalities. We prove convergence theorems of the proposed iterations  in CAT(0) metric spaces.
