Document not being found in node js firebase

I am learning node js and i am learning firestore right now. I am using the firestore emulator. I am making a todo app. Whenever i try and get a doc from firestore it says it doesn’t exist.When i console log the doc it return a promise that is pending here is my code to read the data:

var docRef = db.collection(‘todos’);


var doc = docRef.doc(‘todo1’);
const docinfo = docRef.get();
if (!doc.exists) {
console.log(‘No such document!’);
} else {
console.log(‘Document data:’,;

All the code is based of the firebase documentation
(Get data with Cloud Firestore  |  Firebase).
The json it should return is:
item: “test”
Can anyone help me?
