How to use mongoose findOne

I have the below schema (apologies that it is in coffeescript)

Schema = mongoose.Schema

AuthS = new Schema
auth: {type: String, unique: true}
nick: String
time: Date
Auth = mongoose.model 'Auth', AuthS

I simply want to recover one record which is definitely in my database:

Auth.findOne({nick: 'noname'}, function(obj) { console.log(obj); });

Unfortunately this always logs
db.auths.findOne({nick: 'noname'})
in mongo shell always returns a value. What is going on?


Found the problem, need to use function(err,obj) instead:

Auth.findOne({nick: 'noname'}, function(err,obj) { console.log(obj); });
