Can't access object by id !!?

Hey there,

Here's my concern: I'm creating objects from a web app (node js using nforce). I get a response object with a 18 digit Id, cool!
If I paste this id in the search field in salesforce: no match found... Of course I get an error if I try requesting the object through the web app... 
So I do a little test like: I go to a salesforce record page, I copy the record id from the adress bar, paste it in the search field... no match found!
Am I crazy? Is there something like an index somewhere that could be broken ?
Thanks in advance.

The 18 digit Id is the key/id for the object and not searchable .

Try this:

https://na24.salesforce.com/PUT THE KEY HERE

like 

https://na24.salesforce.com/5011a000000YDTD

This should bring up the object details page.
