Uncaught (in promise): TypeError: this.categoryMap.get is not a function

I have problem calling functions of the Map (get, set, keys, etc) in my function. The map is returned from a firebase query.

Below is my sample code:

categoryMap = new Map<Number, String>();

//called onInit.
loadList() {
  .get().then(res => {
      this.categoryMap = res.data().list;

sampleFunction() {
    //myMap is a dummy map that I took from internet.
    var myMap = new Map();
    myMap.set(0, 'dummy'); //the function can be called.
    console.log(myMap.get(0)); //Can get output.
    console.log(this.categoryMap.get(1)); //Get the error message as title

This is the categoryMap after calling loadList():

1: "Development & IT"
2: "Design & Creative"
3: "Accounting & Consulting"
4: "Translation & Language"
5: "Sales & Marketing"
6: "Sports & Fitness"
7: "Academic & Curricular"
8: "Culinary"
9: "Labor work"

The values are there, but why cant I call any of the function to get my data? I am so confused. Thank you for your help.
