The command you can run in terminal isn't eject disc, it's "drutil eject"

That said, there are a few things you can try:

  • You can start up holding down C or option, then after it boots into that mode hit eject
  • I've had it work sometimes where if you start verifying the drive in disk utility, then run drutil eject it ejects stuck disks
  • Turn off the computer. Now, turn on the computer and hold down the trackpad button to force-eject the disc in the optical drive. Begin to hold the trackpad button as soon as you press the power button and do not let go until the disc has ejected.
  • Double sided tape route
