How do I set an AnimationPlayer node to play on collision?

The code in question is

func _on_door_anim_body_entered(body):
if == "Player":

It always gives me an error

Attempt to call function "play" in base "null instance" on a null instance.

So, that error means that the $door_open_anim reference isn’t valid. You don’t show how/where that’s set, but it isn’t working.
