I am wondering whether it is a wrong expression, it is rarely heard in spoken Chinese.

There are two relavant expressions:

1. "踢到铁板",kicked the iron plate, which means one encounters trouble while bullying who he thought was weak.

e.g. 他以为这小孩很好欺负,结果踢到铁板了。

 

2. "冷板凳", a cold bench. It's a metaphor for a position that is neglected or left out. 

e.g. 历史研究者需要坐得住冷板凳。
