Dear all

I would like to know a counter example to the following integer equation where I think there is no one at all, hoping to be mistaken

PUZZLE

IF (n, m, k) are three positive distinct coprime integers ,where (m, k) are odd integers,

then the following integer equation doesn't have any solution  in the whole number system as defind above

n^3 = m^3 + k^3 + 2*n*m*k

Thanking you a lot

There is some discussion of this equation in Mordell, Diophantine
Equations, especially starting on page 78 and starting on page 130.
