MongoDB stores data in db folder within data folder. But, since this data folder is not created automatically, you have to create it manually. 

Remember that data directory should be created in the root (/).

This will show the database name, number of collection and documents in the database.

In MongoDB, data is stored as documents. 

These documents are stored in MongoDB in JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) format. 

#JSON documents support embedded fields, so related data and lists of data can be stored with the document instead of an external table.
