<joint name="fixed" type="fixed"> <parent link="world"/> <child link="base_link"/> </joint>

fixes the base to the world. Can we fix the robot motion only about specific axis?

I'm confused. Do you want to make a joint between your the world frame and your robot??

Yup, just change the joint type to continuous and give it an <axis>. See the URDF documentation here.

By fixing I mean, I want the base_link not to rotate about Z axis.

You'll have to see exactly which motion you want to allow and constrain all other axes with a combination of prismatic and revolute joints.There isn't a joint type which allows translation on all 3 axes and rotation on XY while constraining Z at the same time.
