    in/on the right place

    Would you say I feel like I’m exactly on the right place or I feel like I’m exactly in the right place?

    Thanks in advance.

    You are usually "in" a place.

    I was in the right place at the right time.

    In a place but on the spot. ('On the spot'='exactly in place'; it can also mean 'in the right place to receive hostile criticism/unwelcome attention': 'When you answered that question by saying that I was the best person to ask, you really put me on the spot.')
