Add entry in known host file

Hi,
If I'm trying to connect server at first time, no entry is availed in
.ssh/known-hosts file.
Using checkp method, i got info about NOTFOUND.
I used knownhost addc method and writefile method to add new entry of
server key.
But it's seems, my understanding might be wrong.
How can i get host key of new server and add it in .ssh/known-hosts file???

Thanks in Advance
