AngularJS Post and CORS

i try to do a sample $ request to sign in user with the same API i use for my website but i have a CORS problem. I have read a lot of post in internet, and i have tried a lot of solution but i don’t arrived to do the post request…
So, my backend is a nodeJS and i have this cors configuration with this api :

app.use(function(req, res, next) {
res.header("Access-Control-Allow-Origin", "*");
res.header("Access-Control-Allow-Headers", "origin,x-requested-with,content-type,accept,x-www-form-urlencoded,json");
res.header("Access-Control-Allow-Methods", "OPTIONS,POST,GET,PUT,DELETE");
next(); });'api/authenticate', function() { // do something }

i try to call it with Postman (the google chrome app) and it work fine. i haven’t any problem. When i try to call this api with angular (not only in ionic, i have made a little angular website to try) i have an OPTIONS request which return 403…
In the nodejs configuration i have print the angular header and i have this :

   { host: 'localhost:8070', // my api adress
  connection: 'keep-alive',
  'access-control-request-method': 'POST',
  origin: '', // ionic serveur adress
  'user-agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/46.0.2490.80 Safari/537.36',
  'access-control-request-headers': 'accept, content-type',
  accept: '*/*',
  referer: '',
  'accept-encoding': 'gzip, deflate, sdch',
  'accept-language': 'fr-FR,fr;q=0.8,en-US;q=0.6,en;q=0.4' }

Can you help me ? An other method like used AFNetworking than angularJs is better ?
Thanks in advance. i’m sorry for my approximate english…
Have a good day.

Does this help at all?:

It work! But an OPTIONS still sending before POST. So when the request will ended by a device the post will be send without OPTIONS if a understand well ? The problem here is the bowser ?

yep it is no problem… this is how it looks like if you deactivate cors on client side.
You will not have this problem on real devices.
