35mm as 50mm equivvilant

Just got the Nikkor 35mm to use as a street-lens and assuming it would give equiv images as a 50mm would.

Now I'm told that thi is not so, that an image from my 35mm on a D5100 would NOT be the same as that from an FX Nikon using a "real" 50mm. Is this true? And if so, what is the point of the "equivalent" concept?
