Coding error .

Hello All  , I am a new learner in Java and trying to run this code .

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Employee {

    private String firstName;
    private String lastName;
    private double monthlySalary;

    public Employee(String firstName, String lastName, double monthlySalary) {
        this.firstName = firstName;
        this.lastName = lastName;

        this.monthlySalary = monthlySalary;

    public String getFirstName() {
        return firstName;

    public String getLastName() {
        return lastName;

    public double getMonthlySalary() {
        return monthlySalary;

    public class EmployeeTest {

        public void main(String[] args) {
            Scanner input = new Scanner(;

            System.out.print("Enter employee one's first name: ");
            String firstName = input.nextLine();
            System.out.print("Enter employee one's last name: ");
            String lastName = input.nextLine();
            System.out.print("Enter employee one's monthly salary: ");
            double monthlySalary = input.nextDouble();
            Employee employee1 = new Employee(firstName, lastName, monthlySalary);


            System.out.printf("Employee one's name: %s, %s%n",
                    employee1.getLastName(), employee1.getFirstName());

getting this error[b][b]:Error: Could not find or load main class employee.Employee.
Please if anybody can clarify me on code as to why this is coming up ?
