Can past history of foreign body in nose be a cause for nose bleed ?

In brief: How far past ?

You wouldn't expect any nose bleed from a FB removed from the nose a couple weeks or more in the past.
If any portion is retained it tends to form a smelly nidus of infection within days that eventually leads to removal.

In brief: Yes

A recent foreign body or the actual attempt to remove it can cause the nose to bleed, so too can a missed foreign body.

In brief: Recent foreign body?

If a foreign body was recently in the nose, the irritation and abrasions caused by the foreign body may not be healed yet.
In this case, a nosebleed may be easier to start in that healing area.

In brief: Unlikely

If a foreign body such as a rock was the cause of the bleeding it is likely the bleeding would have been present all along.
One exeption would be if not all of the foreign body was removed. Your nose would react to the remnants of the foreign body and could cause bleeding or foul smelling discharge.
