In my simulation, I use a nozzle through which very high-temperature steel flows. 

The geometry of the nozzle is such that flow in the nozzle is symmetric. Due to this, I considered half part of the nozzle. 

The nozzle has a curved surface at the bottom which should be specified as the symmetric region.

I don't think you need to select the curved face to apply symmetry in this case, just select the flat face at the right end?

you can visualize symmetry as shown here.
