How to send data from express server to client on Next js?

I have a next js web app with express. I want to post data to this webpage fetch it on my server and pass it on to my next js page. I am new to next js and express. Following is my server.js code:-

const express = require('express')
const next = require('next')

const port = parseInt(process.env.PORT, 10) || 3000
const dev = process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production'
const app = next({ dev })
const handle = app.getRequestHandler()

app.prepare().then(() => {
  const server = express()

  server.use(express.json());"/posts", (req, res) => {
    console.log("Post data : ",
    console.log("JSON Response : ",res.json());

  // server.get('/posts/', (req, res) => {
  //   console.log("Post data again : ",
  //   return app.render(req, res, '/posts', { id: "Pritam" })
  // })

  server.get('*', (req, res) => {
    return handle(req, res)

  server.listen(port, err => {
    if (err) throw err
    console.log(`> Ready on http://localhost:${port}`)

When I use get request I am able to send data from my server to the client using return app.render(req, res, ‘/posts’, { name: “Pritam” }) but when I try to do the same thing with post I am not able to receive any data on my client. Initially, I have tried passing values in query params and it works fine. Following is my posts.js code:-

import React, { Component } from 'react'

class Posts extends Component {
  static async getInitialProps ({ query: { id } }) {
    console.log("Response is ")
    return { postId: id }
  render () {
    return (
        <p>Post data {this.props.postId}</p>

export default Posts;

I would like to create an endpoint from my server code to send data to my client and receive that data in getInitialProps and render it on my client-side. Any help or suggestion is much appreciated. Thank you.
