Pyrex is safe to go from direct cold to a hot oven without shattering.

But before putting the cold Pyrex dish into the oven make sure to preheat the oven first and then place the cold Pyrex dish into the preheated oven.

The company that makes Pyrex states that not preheating the oven first can cause the cold Pyrex to shatter if put into the oven directly from the freezer or fridge but preheating the oven first will prevent the cold Pyrex dish from breaking and shattering.

If it were me though personally I would let the Pyrex dish set outside at room temperature while I was preheating the oven to allow it to warm up just a bit to prevent the possibility of it breaking and shattering.
