How protons became closer during Big bang process?

I know that strong nuclear force is a short-ranged force. So, I would like to know how protons became closer during Big bang process. Is it because of very high temperature and pressure during this ?
Please explain me.
Thanks in advance.

In nuclear fusion the nucleons (protons and neutrons come closer because of their high energies. When they come closer to each other in the order of distances of fermi (10^-15 m) nuclear force – the strongest force in nature, comes into play
