Rien n'arrive

Why is rien n'arrive considered incorrect for ' nothing happened' while the lesson gives the same phrase as an example

This question relates to:
French lesson "Personne ne ..., rien ne ... = No one, nothing (negation)"

Bonjour Meghna ! "Rien n'arrive" is in the present tense, so would be "Nothing happens/is happening", but not the past tense "Nothing happened" :) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
