Cannot see links in org-roam buffer and org-roam-server

I’ve been setting up org-roam for the past 2 days and I can’t seem to figure out how the links actually work.

I can insert them with org-roam-insert(-immediate) : files do show up in the minibuffer for completion and I can follow them as well.

But the org-roam buffer is blank and the links do not show in the graph built by org-roam-server or the native graphing executable by graphviz.

Appreciate any help / links / guides for a proper workflow

Do you use a symbolic link within Org-roam directory? If so, the problem might be solved by using file-tuename to define org-roam-directory like this:

(setq (org-roam-directory (file-truename "/path/to/org-files/")))

You may need to rebuild the db to effect it for existing files. See if it works with a couple of new files first.

Thanks a lot.
That was exactly the problem;
Using an absolute path without any symbolic links solved the issue.
