    This problem can be solved by nobody.

    Is the following sentence grammatically incorrect?

    This problem can be solved by nobody.

    I don't know why.

    please help me.

    It's not incorrect, but it would be much more typical/standard to say it this way:
    This problem can't be solved by anybody.
