No, because putting a comma signifies that the sentence ends outside the quotation marks and putting an exclamation mark says that it ends inside.

When a quotation appears within a quotation what the punctuation marks?

The inner quotation is treated just like the outer quotation in terms of capitalization, commas etc., but the quotation marks are single rather than double. e.g. She replied, "He only exclaimed, 'I don't like you anymore!' and walked away." Before both quotations, the inner and the outer, there is a comma. The punctuation completing each quotation is still within the appropriate quotation marks - the exclamation point at the end of the internal exclamation is inside the internal quotations. However, the quotation marks for the inner quotation are single (like apostrophes - ' ) instead of double (as usual - " ).

Do you put comma or period inside quotation marks Period or comma?

This depends on the context... If the quotation is at the end of the sentence, place a period inside the quotation marks. EX: Raul remarked, "I rather dislike pistachios." If the sentence continues on after the sentence, place a comma inside the quotation marks. EX: "Now I see your point," she admitted. And in the case that the quotation is at the end of the sentence AND one is writing a research paper with MLA internal citations, the period comes outside of the quotation marks and after the internal citation. EX: Disease was originally thought to originate from "unbalance humors or devilish spirits" (Robinson 56). (Note that these rules change if you use exclamation points or question marks.) (Also note that the citation and quoted text in the third example are completely fictitious.)
