Why can’t I find my own sample node?

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share the workflow

(Select the nodes and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow respectively)

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version:0.209.1
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite):
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]:Docker,npm

My assumption would be that you did not install your custom nodes correctly. Looks, for example like you are running n8n in two different ways. One time locally installed via npm and one time via Docker. If you run n8n in Docker the custom nodes can not show up (unless you really know what you are doing and you configured everything accordingly).
So my suggestion would be to stay with the on your host npm installed version of n8n + nodes installed locally as in the already previously shared video. If you follow that video step by step without diverging, the node should show up fine.

Here is also a link to the appropriate docs:

If I do not start n8n on Docker, I will always be prompted with a password error when logging in.
