The "--show" option accepts your password hash filename, not john.pot.
(It knows to read john.pot on its own, without you needing to tell it.)

So if you cracked your hash e.g. with:

john hash.txt

then to display the cracked password later you can use:

john --show hash.txt

Alternatively, you can look inside john.pot manually, e.g. with:

type john.pot

assuming that you're on Windows.
