Linux Command Listing Files In Directory

I was searching for Linux command for listing number of files in a directory.
I got the luck with find command.

$ find firmware/sedna/apps/NAS-2/webserver/html/js/ -type f | wc -l

and ls command shows output as
$ ls -lh

CVS folder contains 3 files,
means the output of find command is giving results with adding files from sub folder also,.
And the sub folder is also considered as file.

$ find firmware/sedna/apps/NAS-2/webserver/html/js/ -type f | wc -l

This find command will work good for listing number of files in a directory without having sub directory.

In the same folder if i run
$ ls -1R | wc -l
result is 26

Not sure what is reason.
