It was nice meeting you? or it was nice to meeting you?

I heard someone say "it was nice to meeting you" the other day. I thought it was "it was nice meeting you" (without "to") for a long time, because I was thinking that "to" couldn't be followed by gerunds (except "looking forward to ~ing").

Do both "it was nice meeting you" and "it was nice to meeting you" mean the same thing?

    You can either say,
    It was nice meeting you
    or
    It was nice to meet you

    If you want to reply when someone says this to you, you can reply
    It was nice meeting you, too
    or
    It was nice to meet you as well

    TAKAKO.

    He probably said, " It was nice too meeting you."

    It was nice meeting you--somebody said.
    It was nice too meeting you--he replied.


    It was nice to meet you......correct
    It was nice to meeting you......incorrect


    both of them are said when you meet someone for the first time
    but
    nice to meet you: when you are just introduced to someone
    nice meeting you : when you are going to leave someone you've just been introduced to
