You may want to share you code and commands you call one by one.

> Hello kind Freeswitch mailing group!
> I am using ESL to control my calls entirely from a Node application.
> I am using the 'modesl <https://github.com/englercj/node-esl>' package to
> create an ESL connection and listen to the FS events
> <https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/Event+List> and
> then answer a call if the number matches a dialplan I want to control using
> the mod_command "uuid_answer."
> However, when my script answers a call, the music on hold plays in the
> background, even if I control the channel and am able to play other IVR
> audio in the call. As soon as my desired IVR commands complete, the music
> on hold returns in between, and it is quite annoying to hear small snippets
> of music.  Eventually the call hangs up.
> I am thinking that maybe the call has not actually been answered properly
> and that FS thinks that it is in fact on hold, and eventually hangs up on
> it, even though my script appears to have "answered" the call.
> Can anyone shed any light on this?  I think that I am doing
> something wrong.  I had tried to get an Outbound
> <https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/Event+Socket+Outbound>
> connection to my Node script but it was receiving no events so didn't know
> when to answer.  The only way I could detect and answer the call was by
> using the Inbound approach to listen to events.
> I would be very grateful if anyone could give me some advice on this if
> you recognise my issue.
> Kind regards,
