find -ing all object files recursively: How to

I need some help here. I read manual, but am still not quite good with "find".
How do I find all object files (*.o, *.a, *.so) recursively under the current
directory, and pass the result to "nm" so that I can get all the symbol of
all those object files?
So the problems are:
1. Find the object files recursively <-- not quite sure how to do this
2. pass the result to "nm". I can't figure this out, here is what I've tried:
[rb@dev petsc-2.1.6]$ find -iname libpetscgsolver.a
[rb@dev petsc-2.1.6]$ find -iname libpetscgsolver.a | nm -o
nm: a.out: No such file or directory
So even when I pipe it to "nm", it wont accept it, why? I can do this however:
[rb@dev petsc-2.1.6]$ nm -o `find -iname libpetscgsolver.a`
with the backtick, but I'm not sure if that would work if the output of find
is more than one file.
I am in need of tracing all kind of symbol for debugging, so this would help
me out rather than have to do it manually.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
