    You should be more specific, but it's not correct, there's a bishop on a3.

    1. Nxf4+...Nxf4 (forced) 2. Ngxe7#

    Yah, the author intentionally made this an illegal position.  This problem will put the solver's thinking ability to supreme test!! Engines cannot be of help. Cheaters are not welcome here.

    you didn'd state any move black had to make in the question, just a sequence of two moves to mate

    No, it's not a helpmate puzzle, black wouldn't play Nxf4. Kxe6 maybe.

    Hahaha There is no mate in 2, but only mate in 3 (many) 

    Let's see Miss Qweeni2. I qoute you on that!

    We are looking here for a mate in 2 solution, not mate in three. Very difficult isn't it?
