    Well, since you asked, the polite thing to do would be to ask the person if they mind being put on hold. If they say they don't mind then say you'll get back to them as soon as possible. If they say they do mind then tell them you'll call them back later.

    Can we say "nice meeting you" right after meeting them or do we need to say "nice to meet you" in the beginning of our meeting?

    You are right about saying "nice meeting you" during partings. "Meeting" means "to have met".
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    So, we can say both when we first meet "nice to meet you" and "nice meeting you" however, "nice meeting you" is the only thing that can be said at the end of the meeting. Am I correct?

    No, you aren't. I answered this just a couple of posts back. Thread closed.
