Meeting someone for the first time:
We usually say :'good morning/good afternoon, nice to meet you', when we meet someone for the first time.
(apart from ' How do you do' which is formal.
The answer could be :'nice to meet you too' or 'same here'.
'nice meeting you' is to tell him/her good bye.
meeting a colleague:
'Good morning/good aftenoon, how are you?'
The answer could be :'Fine, thank you/thanks, how about you?'
'Have a nice day/evening/weekend', to tell him/her good bye.
Less formal: meeting friends
'Hi, how are you doing?'
The answer could be: 'I'm good/ok...how about you?'
'Take care/take it easy', to say good bye
This is rather American English, not British English.
