If the web server is connected directly to the Internet, you can just assign a static IP to the web server, and then the web site, then configure the site to use SSL.

If there's a firewall performing NAT between the web server and the Internet, you'll need to set up the NAT rule in your firewall, specifying the public IP and its mapping to a private IP on the web server first.

There is a firewall and I have set rules to route or open ports to the server.

In IIS I have the public IP address setup to bind to HTTPS.

Unless the server is directly connected to the internet you cannot use the 'public' ip address and must use the private ip address.

As noted, you'd assign a private IP address in IIS, a public IP address to the external power on the firewall, then use the firewall to NAT from public to private and back again.

I've been trying to bind public ip address with IIS. Not going to work. How does the web server know what public IP address to use?

The web server doesn't.  Requests come in from the Internet via the public IP on the firewall.  The firewall forwards the request to the web server's private IP.  The web server receives the request and replies to the request.  The web server neither knows nor cares what the public IP address is.
