No map generated with nav2d simulation using turtlebot3 [closed]

Hi, i'm new to ROS and i'm trying to use the nav2d package for simulations of Turtlebot3 using Gazebo instead of Stage. The problem is that when i launch the simulation, no map is generated and because of that, the exploration and mapping(of course) don't work. I've tried to control topics and as one can guess, no messages are published on /map topic. The fact is that i haven't touched anything, except adding Turtlebot3 model and Gazebo to launch file. I attach my launch file. `<launch>

<!-- Some general parameters -->
<!-- <param name="use_sim_time" value="true" /-->
<rosparam file="$(find nav2d_tutorials)/param/ros.yaml"/>

<!-- Start Gazebo simulator with a given environment -->

Thanks for help!!

Hi :)

May you copy and paste with error messages in terminal?

HI! The fact is that no error occurs. I think the problem could be that i haven't done some remapping, because if i do the simulation with stage, everything works well and there are three topics that with Gazebo don't appear. I've tried to check the code, but i don't find the way to solve this
