    Help with parametric equation

    Consider a curve given by the parametric equations (t, t^2 - 1. t^3 + 1)
    Find an equation of the normal plane at the point (0, -1, 1).

    I know that t= 0

    r'(t) = < 1, 2t, 3t^2>
    r' (0) = <1 ,0 ,0>

    What is the equation? is it just x = 0?

    Thanks in advance
