my nagmin activation gives failure message

I have configured nagios through nagmin. I am using nagmin 2.0.0. When i try to activate it.
I got the following error message. Can anybody help me? &

Reading configuration data...

Error: Template 'generic-contact' specified in contact definition could not be not found (config file '/usr/local/nagmin/nagio/Contact.cfg', line 3)

***> The name of the main configuration file looks suspicious...

Make sure you are specifying the name of the MAIN configuration file on
the command line and not the name of the host configuration file. The
main configuration file is typically '/usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg'

***> One or more problems was encountered while processing the config files...

Check your configuration file(s) to ensure that they contain valid
directives and data defintions. If you are upgrading from a previous
version of Nagios, you should be aware that some variables/definitions
may have been removed or modified in this version. Make sure to read
the HTML documentation on the main and host config files, as well as the
'Whats New' section to find out what has changed.

Activation Aborted...
