ChartJS - Stacked Bar -> Not drawing any bars

Help, please :-S

Im trying to get a stacked bar chart working, but I get no bars shown when I try and build it. Im not really fussed at the moment if the data is right, as I can manipulate that, but Im totally stuck where Im going wrong and why my bars are not drawing at all.

<canvas id="chartJSContainer" width="300" height="150"></canvas>

    const ctx = document.getElementById('chartJSContainer');

    const myChart = new Chart(ctx, {
        type: 'bar',
        data: {
            label: ["D1", "D2", "D3", "D4", "D5", "D6"],
            datasets: [
                    label: 'Dataset 1',
                    data: [12, 19, 3, 5, 2, 3],
                    backgroundColor: 'rgba(255, 99, 132, 0.2)',
                    stack: 'combined',
                    type: 'bar'
                    label: 'Dataset 2',
                    data: [12, 19, 3, 5, 2, 3],
                    backgroundColor: 'rgba(54, 162, 235, 0.2)',
                    stack: 'combined',
                    type: 'bar'
                    label: 'Dataset 3',
                    data: [12, 19, 3, 5, 2, 3],
                    backgroundColor: 'rgba(75, 192, 192, 0.2)',
                    stack: 'combined',
                    type: 'bar'
        options: {
            plugins: {
                title: {
                    display: true,
                    text: 'Chart.js Bar Chart - Stacked'
            responsive: true,
            scales: {
                y: {
                    stacked: true
