The Siege of Utumno was a great battle between Morgoth and the Valar. The forces of the Valar were easily able to storm the black fortress. They drove Melkor into the depths of Utumno. Eventually Utumno was captured and leveled, and Melkor was taken to the Halls of Mandos, bound by the great chain Angainor. He was taken back to Valinor for judgment before Manwë.
