let*: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

According to the idea represented here [1], I wrote the following
function to activate the python virtual environment automatically
using the content of the ".python-version" file located in the project
directory of the current opened python file:

(defun pyvenv-autoload ()
    (require 'projectile)
    (let* ((pdir (file-name-directory buffer-file-name)) (pfile
(concat pdir ".python-version")))
      (if (file-exists-p pfile)
          (pyvenv-workon (with-temp-buffer
                           (insert-file-contents pfile)
                           (nth 0 (split-string (buffer-string))))))))
(add-hook 'python-mode-hook 'pyvenv-autoload)

It seems the corresponding python virtual environment can be activated
automatically when I open the python file in Emacs. But when I try to
evaluate the file, the following message will be triggered, and defeat
the evaluate operation:

let*: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil


Any hints for fixing this problem?
