Self Join to get employee manager name

Hello I have a Employee Table with following columns

Emp_id, Emp_Name and Mgr_id.

I am trying to create a view which will list

Emp_id, Emp_name, Mgr_id and Mgr_name (by cross joining the Employee table). I tried outer join, inner join etc, but I am not able to get it right.

Any help is highly appreciated.

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tblEmployeeDetails](
[emp_id] [bigint] NOT NULL,
[emp_name] [nvarchar](200) NULL,
[emp_mgr_id] [bigint] NULL, CONSTRAINT [PK_tblEmployeeDetails] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED (
[emp_id] ASC )WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON) ON [PRIMARY] ) ON [PRIMARY]

Answer
CREATE VIEW AS
SELECT e1.emp_Id EmployeeId, e1.emp_name EmployeeName, 
       e1.emp_mgr_id ManagerId, e2.emp_name AS ManagerName
FROM   tblEmployeeDetails e1
       JOIN tblEmployeeDetails e2
       ON e1.emp_mgr_id = e2.emp_id

EDIT: Left Join will work.

CREATE VIEW AS 
SELECT e1.emp_Id EmployeeId, e1.emp_name EmployeeName,  
       e1.emp_mgr_id ManagerId, e2.emp_name AS ManagerName 
FROM   tblEmployeeDetails e1 
       LEFT JOIN tblEmployeeDetails e2 
       ON e1.emp_mgr_id = e2.emp_id
