which is more basic, OH- or CH3O-?

I thought it would be OH- because when one looks at the conjugate acids of these two ions, methanol is slightly more acidic which implies that it is slightly less basic and the hydroxide ion is the more basic. But apparently this is not the case so could you please clarify.
