Basic ion-nav-view example

I am new to using Ionic. I have successfully used Ionic view and created a very basic App using HTML5. But now I would like to create a simple App that uses SQLite, and every example I see uses ion-nav-view. I am having trouble with ion-nav-view. No matter what I add/remove/change, I only get a blank screen. and 100% of every example I find that uses ion-nav-view shows the code in piece meal instead of the whole thing, so I am left to guessing what I missed.

If you have a SIMPLE code that shows how to use “ion-nav-view” to reference other HTML pages, please send the link!!
