Can't add node exporter as a source

Hello. I get an error when i try to add node exporter as a source.

Error reading Prometheus: bad_response: readObjectStart: expect { or n, but found <, error found in #1 byte of …| <|…, bigger context …| Node Exporter|…

My node exporter URL:
Prometheus config:


  • job_name: “node”
    • targets: [‘’]

Metrics URL work fine and show metrics from browser and CURL on prometheus server. Prometheus UI also correct work with this node. But why grafana can’t add this source?

Where is in relation to your prometheus network wise?

What does prom logs say?
