Update One Record to add object Error(NodeJS)

I was playing with my nodjs and mongoDB. I found an error that I can not update a object.

const { MongoClient, ObjectID } = require('mongodb');
// or as an es module:
// import { MongoClient } from 'mongodb'

const url =
const client = new MongoClient(url);

// Database Name
const dbName = 'studio';

export async function insertData(_id: string) {
  // Use connect method to connect to the server
  await client.connect();
  console.log('Connected successfully to server');
  const db = client.db(dbName);
  const collection = db.collection('shops');

  return new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {
      { _id: ObjectID(_id) },
        $set: {
          address: {
            type: 'Point',
            coordinates: [123, 321],
      (err, res) => {
        if (err) reject(err);

I was trying to insert an address(Object), by using NestJS. And got this error.

So I wonder what I did wrong. I could update key : value, but I can’t update key:object, If I enter an empty object, it works.

Is there anyone who has an answare?


The issue is that coordinates: [123, 321] aren’t valid coordinates, this is because 321 isn’t a valid latitude value. Latitudes are between -90 and +90, whereas longitudes can be between -180 and +180.

The clue is in the error message: "longitude/latitude out of bounds".

If you make sure that your coordinates valid you shouldn’t run into this error.
