If a ram of 3200MHz bus speed is set up on a motherboard of supporting upto 2666MHz bus speed then may any problem occur??

The RAM will slow down to the speed of the Motherboard. It just means you won't be using the full capabilities of the RAM.

Likewise if you put in a slower RAM module, the faster one would slow down to the speed of the slower one.

As long as it's the correct memory type for the board (DDR3, DDR4, etc.) you should have no issues.

Check the motherboard specification. My motherboard supports RAM speeds upto 2666MHz but also supports higher speeds overclocked. My RAM is 3000MHz and it was a simple matter of selecting the correct speed from a drop-down list in the BIOS.
