Solution

Sometimes the alias for mongod doesn’t work. Use the full path to mongod instead:

sudo mongod --dbpath /System/Volumes/Data/data/db

Still not working?

Another option is a direct download of a ZIP file of MongoDB from Mongo’s official website.

Check that you installed MongoDB correctly.
