How to Add osm Coordinates to my Collection in meteor

I am working on a simple map on a dashboard that registers click events and save the locations into a collection and also creates a marker on the location clicked. However, only the locations clicked get saved and the markers do not show up. Here is my code below

    var map = L.map('osm-container', {
        center: [6.54, 3.33],
        zoom: 13
    var markers = {};
    var id;

    L.tileLayer('http://api.tiles.mapbox.com/v4/{id}/{z}/{x}/{y}.png?access_token={accessToken}', {
        attribution: 'Imagery from <a href="http://mapbox.com/about/maps/">MapBox</a> &mdash; Map data &copy; <a href="http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright">OpenStreetMap</a>',
        subdomains: 'abcd',
        id: 'REMOVED',
        accessToken: 'REMOVED'
    var coordinates = {};
    map.on('click', function(event) {
        var randm = Math.ceil(10000*Math.random());
        var entry = Coordinates.insert({ 
              lat: event.latlng.lat,
              lng: event.latlng.lng,
              seq: randm });
        id = entry;

        added: function (document) {
            L.marker({ lat: Coordinates.find({_id:id},{lat:1, _id:0}), 
                       lng: Coordinates.find({_id:id},{lng:1,_id:0}) },{
                clickable : true,
                draggable: true,
                keyboard: true,
                riseOnHover: true

            map.on('dragend', function(event) {

            // markers[id] = mark;
        changed: function(newDocument, oldDocument) {
            // todo;
        removed: function (oldDocument) {
            // todo 

Please can anyone help

There seem to be multiple things wrong, but one thing for sure is that you are not actually setting the lat/lng for the markers (they are both "1" in your code). Also, you don't need to find there once more. The document is already given to you in whole, so you can just take the fields you need:

    added: function (document) {
        L.marker({ lat: document.lat,
                   lng: document.lng, }, {
