Discuss Find Methods in MongoDB?

Finding and retrieving documents from the collection has two methods:

  • findOne(filter)
  • find(filter)

Both methods accept a filter optionally where the filter is used to filter the documents for finding or retrieving.

With findOne() we can get the first document of the collection. If we pass a filter for findOne(), we will get the first match of the documents.


With find() we can get all the documents from the collection. If we pass the filter to find() it will return with filtered documents
