abstract = {A normed space $mathfrak{X}$ is said to have the fixed point property, if for each nonexpansive mapping $T : E longrightarrow E $ on a nonempty bounded closed convex subset $ E $ of $ mathfrak{X} $ has a fixed point. In this paper, we first show that if $ X $ is a locally compact Hausdorff space then the following are equivalent: (i) $X$ is infinite set, (ii) $C_0(X)$ is infinite dimensional, (iii) $C_0 (X)$ does not have the fixed point property. We also show that if $A$ is a commutative complex $ mathsf{C}^star$--algebra with nonempty carrier space, then the following statements are equivalent: (i) Carrier space of $ A $ is infinite, (ii) $ A $ is infinite dimensional, (iii) $ A $ does not have the fixed point property. Moreover, we show that if $ A $ is an infinite complex $ mathsf{C}^star$--algebra (not necessarily commutative), then $ A $ does not have the fixed point property.},
