AppRegistryNotReady("Models aren't loaded yet.")

So I’m trying to integrate a model with mongoDB usng djongo driver, and when I tried to insert a record from within models.py it is giving me this error.

AppRegistryNotReady("Models aren't loaded yet.")

here are my code files.
models.py

from djongo import models

class Iname(models.Model):
    item_name = models.TextField()
    
    class Meta:
        abstract = True
        
class Iquantity(models.Model):
    item_quantity = models.FloatField()
    
    class Meta:
        abstract = True
        
class Iprice(models.Model):
    item_price = models.FloatField()
    
    class Meta:
        abstract = True
    
class Order(models.Model):
    email = models.EmailField(primary_key = True, name = "email") 
    name = models.CharField(max_length=30, help_text="Enter Customer Name", name = "name")
    address = models.TextField(help_text="Enter customer's Address", name = "address")
    
    item_names = models.ArrayField(model_container = Iname)
    item_quantities = models.ArrayField(model_container = Iquantity)
    item_prices = models.ArrayField(model_container = Iprice)
    
    objects = models.DjongoManager()
    
o = Order()
o.email = "jayesh@gmail.com"
o.name = "dhsdb"
o.address = "agdkhdvf"
o.item_names = ['chocolate', 'pencil']
o.item_quantities = [5, 10]
o.item_prices = [10, 3]
o.save()

serializers.py

from .models import Order, Iname, Iprice, Iquantity
from rest_framework import serializers

class ItemSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        model = Iname
        
class QuantitySerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        model = Iquantity

class PriceSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        model = Iprice

    
class OrderSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    item_names = ItemSerializer()
    item_quantities = QuantitySerializer()
    item_prices = PriceSerializer()
    
    class Meta:
        model = Order
        fields = "__all__"
   

views.py

from rest_framework.decorators import api_view
from rest_framework.response import Response
from .serializers import OrderSerializer
from .models import Order

@api_view(['GET',])
def get_orders(request):
    orders = Order.objects.all()
    serializer = OrderSerializer(instance = orders, many = True)
    print(serializer.data)
    return Response(data = serializer.data)

I’m a newbie and trying to get my hands on django. Please have a look and explain that where and why I’m wrong/ Thank you.

Hey there.
Look’s like you are trying to create a order, but you can’t do that yet.
Django needs to load all apps before you can use the ORM.

If you did really mean to create this object, maybe you’re trying to add some test data to your database. If that’s the case maybe you should look this: How to provide initial data for models | Django documentation | Django.

If not, this code should live inside a view, or into the admin.
