Hi Khourshed, that's an Asplenium scolopendrium, Hart's-tongue Fern (syn. Phyllitis scolopendrium), a hart is a deer. It's evergreen, quite tough,tolerates cold well, no direct hot sun, can be planted outdoors in some areas, there's Asplenium scolopendrium var. Americanum too, which is smaller, but I think u got the European one (Ikea!), I also got one here in Berlin, Germany! Best wishes,
AlexVlad

Definitely an Asplenium species, but could be nidus, the Bird's Nest Fern. These have been bred and numerous forms developed. So difficult to say which one yours actually is.

But if it is A. nidus then it won't take cold as much as some of the other species. They are a warm climate rainforest plant.

I'm no fern buff but Hart's Tongue is a pretty common native round here and I have some in the garden. It doesn't grow straight up out of the ground like the one in the picture, but has dark brown, almost black stems. Also the fronds are longer and narrower with very pronounced veining. It is stiff and leathery. Handy in the garden because it's evergreen.
