HelloCustomer welcome to Just Answer.

If by here you mean on Earth and big bang as in the universe expansion theory, the Earth was not existing yet.

Nobody know currently what happened before the big bang, calculation and observation are always made from fraction of seconds after the event but nobody know. The time 0 itself should be a singularity (a point of zero volume containing all the matter). If we take the universe as a space-time continuum, before the big bang time as we know it probably did not even exist.

Note that the big bang is nothing more than another theory of possible origin of the universe, it only become popular because it's (to a point) easy to understand and is "spectacular". The theory have is flaw and require the invention of many "exotic" matter and energy to make the calculation fit the observation. It also have it's sisters theories, like the big crunch. In that one the universe is in oscillation between total expansion and total contraction.
