Help needed concerning AtlasError

Hi, after successfully submitting the first two challenges, node v12.16.1 throws this error:

  ok: 0,
  code: 8000,
  codeName: 'AtlasError'

When submitting the solution, FCC tells me:

// running tests
Creating and saving a db item should succeed (Test timed out)
// tests completed

Creating and saving a db item should succeed

My code so far:

the .env file:



const mongoose = require('mongoose');

mongoose.connect(process.env.MONGO_URI, {
 useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true 


const Schema = mongoose.Schema;

const personSchema = new Schema({
    name: {
      type: String,
      required: true
    age: {
      type: Number
    favoriteFoods : [
        type: String

  const Person = mongoose.model('Person', personSchema);


var createAndSavePerson = function(done) {
  var janeFonda = new Person({name: "Jane Fonda", age: 84, favoriteFoods: ["vodka", "air"]});, data) {
    if (err) return console.error(err);
    done(null, data)

In package.json:

"mongodb": "^3.6.2",
"mongoose": "^5.9.20"

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
