Do any sound levels register on the meters of the mixer? On the channel or the outputs?

Hey there, and good morning lads! :)
I hope this is the correct section for asking the following questions:
First at all, im "new" to all this stuff, tho ive been making "music" for the several years, but mostly for me and some friends, so i didnt care much about the quality. Ive always done it without any professional equipment before.
I want to record my voice to make rap music, podcasts, voiceovers, and an audio book which i am writing on for several months.
I now decided to get myself a Yamaha MG10 Mixing Console, and a Rode Mt1-A Microphone. I am using Audacity as my main recording software.
I saved up everything i could to afford this equipment and now its driving me crazy not getting it to work properly.
The main problem is, that i seem to not get any sound through the Rode NT1-A into the Yamaha Mg10. I connected the Rode Nt1-A via XLR into the Mic/line In on the mixing console, and the Yamaha is going into the Line in of my Pc. The MG10 is not supporting USB. The Yamaha Mg10 is not having a Main out or Rec out, therefore i am using the Stereo Out (-->line in) which doesnt seem to work for me. I also tried using the Monitor Out, and even tried using a cinch cable.
The Yamaha is showing up as a recording device (through Line in) on my computer, and i am using it as my main recording device, tho whenever i try to record something in Audacity it doesnt seem to get signals. In Audacity itself the Line in is set as the main recording device aswell. All the Regulators on the mixing console are set to "zero" (beside the main volume out regulators which are slightly higher than "normal"). I also tried it with, and without the Phantom Power turned on.
I watched several videos on Youtube, and i read very much about it, so i thought i am doing this right, but it still seems like i am not.
I tried to explain it as best as i can, and i am sorry for my bad grammar, im from austria and i havent spoke a lot of english for a long time :)
I hope you do get what i mean, and if i am lucky you also want to help me aswell, i would appreciate it very very much :)
