I can not create a TokenAccount for WrappedSOL. Here is my code:

const connection = new Connection(clusterApiUrl('mainnet-beta'), 'confirmed');

const tokenAddress = getAssociatedTokenAddressSync(new PublicKey('So11111111111111111111111111111111111111112'), wallet.publicKey);
const tokenAccount = await getAccount(connection, tokenAddress);

const transaction = new Transaction();

try {
    const account = await getAccount(connection, tokenAddress);
} catch (e) {
    if (e instanceof TokenAccountNotFoundError) {
                new PublicKey('So11111111111111111111111111111111111111112')

let signature = await sendAndConfirmTransaction(

When I execute this I get the following error:

if (!info) throw new TokenAccountNotFoundError();
    at unpackAccount (/Users/stefan/Projects/solana-token/node_modules/@solana/spl-token/src/state/account.ts:170:22)
    at /Users/stefan/Projects/solana-token/node_modules/@solana/spl-token/src/state/account.ts:103:12
    at Generator.next (<anonymous>)

    at processTicksAndRejections (node:internal/process/task_queues:95:5)

Has anyone an idea why it does not work? With any other token it works perfectly.

In your fourth line of code
const tokenAccount = await getAccount(connection, tokenAddress);

The token account hasn’t been init yet, so the account info cannot be parsed in to a token account object which throws the error.

Move this line after the transaction is finalized.

A better way to check if it’s an token account will be:

Fetch the token account info, check if the account owner is Token program.
