It should be accepted, I hope you reported it. FYI op een bank is valid as well.

Thanks, I notice that 'op zijn kantoor' is used in previous section, is 'op' can be used in all situation like inside of certain places?

No, you should normally use in for that. However there are a few common buildings that usually take op:

  • op het werk = at work
  • op kantoor = at the office
  • op school = at school
  • op het station = at the station
  • op het stadhuis/gemeentehuis = at the city hall/municipality hall
