I never add that domain to my droplet but, someone pointed that domain to my ip address and they have all my website contents.
What is worse, is that their domain is now upper than ours when you search our website, we are certainly not happy about this.
What should we do?

Create a vhost for that domain and serve up a 301 to your site.

You could consult with a lawyer as this is likely copyright infringement. They will tell you how to do things like send takedown requests.
