That's normal after you've just done nftl_format - there will have been no 
partition table on there. If you tried to write a partition table with 
fdisk and it still said that, then there's something wrong. Check that 
you can read and write the raw /dev/nftla device. 

Also, try using the nftldump utility (on /dev/mtd0) to check that the
contents of the flash are sane.
