A few minutes after the Big Bang, when temperature had decreased about 10 billion degrees, protons and neutrons which were created, merged to form deuterium and helium nuclei. The abundances of these light nuclei allows us to understand how the universe evolved in its early stages, i.e. the process of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. In relativistic heavy-ion collisions, nucleosynthesis process is reproduced but in a different time scale. For this reason we study the production of light nuclei in ALICE experiment and their abundances through coalescence model, using the ALICE Off-Line framework for simulation, reconstruction and analysis: AliRoot. The management of this computational tool allows us to gain a perspective about what will happen in the real experiment, and how such nucleon plasma became the universe we now observe.
