No studs on shared interior wall

last modified: last month

I moved into a building that was converted into apartments. For a shared interior wall with the next door unit, I used a stud finder and found no studs. I know that the stud finder works, because I easily found studs on the wall facing the exterior, the side with the windows.

I always thought all walls had studs. But when I went over the wall with the stud finder, I couldn't find a single stud. I found places where smaller nails were used for the drywall, but no studs. I was hoping to put in hooks for coats and bags and a few paintings. This interior wall isn't load bearing. Is it possible for an interior wall not to have studs?
