But how is that canon has 800mmIs and 1000mm IS long telephoto lens?

Bragging rights.

In fact they could have ignored the market and concentrated on other
range. Since big guns like canon have this range, should'nt nikon be
compelled into the market?

As I said, I wouldn't count on it. Likewise, I wouldn't count it out. The designers of the exotics don't have anything else to do now that they've redone the entire line up ; ). But I'd think that there would be more market for other designs, such as a 300-600mm f/4 or f/5.6, and Nikon still doesn't have a 300mm f/4 AF-S VR, a 400mm f/5.6 AF-S VR, or a 500mm f/5.6 AF-S VR, all of which would be well received. And there's that pesky 80-400mm that needs redesigning, a missing 70-200mm f/4, and a host of other telephotos that would sell in higher numbers and fill gaps that Canon or others currently fill.
