|No one (or 'nobody') means 'no person' and is used in positive sentences:
There's no one there.
No one/nobody's perfect.
Anyone (or 'anybody') means 'some person' and is used in questions and negatives:
Has anyone seen Agatha?
She won't speak to anyone.
NB: Double negatives are usually avoided in English. You should say either 'I saw no one there' or 'I didn't see anyone there'.
