AlwaysOn Listener in SQL Server 2016

We have newly configured AlwaysOn in SQL Server 2016. But we didn't added any DB to AG group (Just empty).
When i ping AG listerner i am not able to ping.

My understand is if we not add any DB to AG group, the listerner will not work.
Am i correct?  if not please correct.

It shouldn't. The listener is just a virtual IP so it should answer to pings.
Check in the Windows Cluster if that network resource is up and running.
If you want you can create a dummy database in the AG just for confirm that no database is needed to ping the Listener.
