Nodejs express auth0 unauthorized 401

I have a reactjs app running on localhost:3000, I want to use auth0 for authentication. The user authenticates on the front end successfully and when sending requests to the nodejs express api, I want it to validate the jwt for certain end points. Currently, I have 2 paths
localhost:8001/api/displays and localhost:8001/api/orders/all, I have configured the express-openid-connect jwks-rsa express-jwt in my server.js. I have set the authRequired: false and not using the requiresAuth () on any endpoint. Still, I get the 401 Unauthorized when accessing displays and orders.


import cors from 'cors';

var corsOptions = {
    origin: "http://localhost:3000",
    optionsSuccessStatus: 200 


    authRequired: false,
    auth0Logout: true,
    baseURL: 'http://localhost:8001',
    clientID: '****',
    issuerBaseURL: '****',
    secret: '****'

var jwtCheck = jwt({
    secret: jwks.expressJwtSecret({
        cache: true,
        rateLimit: true,
        jwksRequestsPerMinute: 5,
        jwksUri: '****/.well-known/jwks.json'
    audience: 'localhost:8001',
    issuer: '****',
    algorithms: ['RS256']



import eoc from 'express-openid-connect';

const { requiresAuth } = eoc;

export const displayRoutes = app => {
    let router = express.Router();
    router.get("/", findAllDisplays);
    app.use('/api/displays', router);

export const ordersRoutes = app => {
    let router = express.Router();
    router.get("/", getAllOrders);
    app.use('/api/orders/all', router);
