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 $\mathsf{C}^*$-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 $\mathsf{C}^*$-algebra (not necessarily commutative), then $ A $ does not have the fixed point property.https://ijnaa.semnan.ac.ir/article_289_75ca5b7bd96a777bf6f51352b152a680.pdf
