external flash settings - d3400

hi

i try to shoot with d3400 and a nikon sb-28 flash in the hotshoe.
i set the flash to ttl and the camera on p or a.

the camera ignores the flash and gives me a long exposure (since the subject is obviously dark / it's night). and since the light from the flash is added to the exposure the foto is very over-exposed.

what should be the settings in order to get good exposure?

when i put a nikon ttl flash in the hotshow, isn't exposure be set automatically to 1/250 or something? and shouldn't exposure be calculated relating to the flash?

please help. i'm lost.

thanks

Nikon D3400
