Unexpected Token always on the first line

import { capitalize, InstallGlobalCommands } from './utils.js';
import { getRPSChoices } from './game.js';
import 'dotenv/config';

This is cloned from discord official getting-started.
I always have Unexpected Token error on the first import line.
Looks like something’s wrong with the parser?

The error I got is

> node commands.js

import { capitalize, InstallGlobalCommands } from './utils.js';

SyntaxError: Unexpected token {
