fxml getController() returns null


Question

I am newbie in JavaFX. Can anyone help me?

Here is my code

Stage stage = new Stage();

FXMLLoader loader = new FXMLLoader();
Parent root = (Parent) loader.load(getClass().getResource("FXMLMain.fxml").openStream());
FXMLMainController mainController = loader.getController();
mainController.setStage(stage);
stage.setScene(new Scene(root));
stage.show();

((Node) (event.getSource())).getScene().getWindow().hide();

loader.getController() returns null

java.lang.NullPointerException
