A, "Is that not what happened?"

B, "No."

A, "What happened, then?" / "Then, what happened?" / "What did happen, then?" / "Then, what did happen?"

What can I use of these? Are they all natural here to native speakers?

"What happened, then?" or "Then, what happened?"

For an English speaker, you can immediately throw away the last two options. Usually, I use the first one but the second one can also be used. It is completely on your preference because there is no exact rule on this.
