Has anyone ever heard of the book. Supposedly it was a gospel that was banned at the council of Nicea because it disagreed with Church teachings.

Except that it was the Epistle of Barnabas they're talking about.

The Gospel of Barnabas was written in Italian in the 14th century. The errors in the gospel give away the late European composition. Chapter 82 mentions a hundred year jubilee. The Jewish jubilee is every 50 years. Pope Boniface VIII started the Christian jubilees of 100 years in 1300.

And the canon of the Bible isn't mentioned in the Canons of the First Council of Nicaea.
