The line has 0 height and ∞ lenght so the area is 0*∞=0 but it is made from ∞ points with 0 length so 0*∞=∞.
What's your opinion about this?

Welcome to the forum.
Mathematicians have a symbol for infinity and use it in certain topics but have found it is best not to regard it as a number, as it doesn't obey the usual rules. Your question is a good demonstration of this. Here's some more:
∞ +1 = ∞
∞ x 5 = ∞
∞ x 7 = ∞
∞ /∞ = ????
