Abstract: It is shown that a nowhere equicontinuous homeomorphism can be defined on a compact polyhedron X if and only if X does not have cell decomposition which contains a principal 1-cell. It is also shown that for each locally connected contractible continuum C in the plane, there is a nowhere equicontinuous homeomorphism $ {h_c}$ on a disk in the plane such that the fixed point set of $ {h_c}$ is C.
