id: cannot find name for group ID 1000 / user ID 1000

So I have installed my LFS system to my laptop and now I'm done installing Xorg and stuff so I added a user

useradd -c "My Name" -g 1000 mcz
passwd mcz
Then when I log in I get this
id: cannot find name for group ID 1000
id: cannot find name for user ID 1000
in /etc/{passwd,shadow} my new user exist and the group users with id 1000 is in /etc/groups

passwd: files
group: files
shadow: files

What else is missing?

EDIT: nvm, /etc/{passwd,group} was chmod 600
