    I suppose "open the floor to the questions" means that people are welcome to ask questions. But my question is that do the native speakers use this expression often, o you have different expressions? Thank you all in advance.

    It is quite common however, the expression I have heard used is "open the floor for questions"

    I agree that 'for' is more common than 'to' here. This is the standard set phrase that people use when starting the question period of a formal talk. If you're giving a less formal talk, you might just ask if anyone has any questions.
