$regex not working

regex not working for string “ahs():+ahs” let us know how we can search with . dot or other specials char
db.getCollection.find({“name” : { $regex :".ahs()- ,’ : +ahs.", $options : “i”}})

For below query we are getting result.

db.getCollection(‘parameter’).find({“name” : { $regex :".ahs().", $
