Hi guys my cars not starting

i took my car for a 5 min drive down the road then I just left car to idle well talking to some mates then suddenly my car switched off so I left my bonnet to see why and found one of my coil packs blow so I ended up replaceing the blown coil pack and 3 spark plugs and found the part numbers are different ngk iridium fr5ie-13 are my 3 new ones 3 old and the other 3 spark are my old ones ngk iridium fr6ie-11 and my engine still wont start. Having 2 different spark plugs in my engine at the same time will that make my engine not turn over?

Having two different brands of plugs won't prevent the engine from starting. However, they should be replaced as a set. As far as the problem, I've never see a coil pack blow up. You need to check to see if there is spark getting to the plugs. If there isn't, that is what is preventing it from starting. Check to make sure there is power getting to the coil pack.
