That's not a nassarius snail. It's a predatory whelk. Some eat corals, some other snails, some both.

It probably came in on the rock. I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep an eye on things and if you see anything getting chomped on, you know at least one suspect. I've kept them in my tanks before and didn't see any issues.
