Bummer! Did you pass the StreamReader constructor the 'fileName'?

Hi! So I'm at the code challenge and I got stuck here. I don't seem to figure out what am I doing wrong, although I did everything as in the video. Can anyone help me? Many thanks!

CodeChallenge.cs
DirectoryInfo directory = new DirectoryInfo(System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory());
string fileName = Path.Combine(directory.FullName, "secretmessage.txt");
 var file = new FileInfo(fileName);

    if (file.Exists) {
     using (var reader = new StreamReader(file.FullName)){


         }
    }

You don´t need the variable reader.

DirectoryInfo directory = new DirectoryInfo(System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory());
string fileName = Path.Combine(directory.FullName, "secretmessage.txt");
var file = new FileInfo(fileName);

if (file.Exists) 
{
    using(new StreamReader(fileName))
    {   

    }
}
