Needs advice

Hey guys! I am looking for some advice. I would like to start learning new technologies but I am confused about some concepts:

My objective is to have a Next.js frontend application (which will be getting data from a custom API), and a backend web app running ExpressJS.

I would like to use GraphQL, so I found that I can use Hasura to expose the PostgreSQL data directly to the frontend, so my question is: is it possible for the backend to connect to Hasura and do CRUD on the database or should I use something like Prisma + Graphql?

Could you please give an example of a working application using these technologies, or an approach on how you will implement it? Thanks!
