In brief: Maybe nothing
If it is mild bruising/contusion, just keep it elavated; otc motrin/aleve may help with pain etc.
..If you can't move/bend it or if pain is severe, you may have a fracture. Check with your doc for possible xray---a finger splint maybe needed if fracture is found.

In brief: How bad is it?
If you crushed your finger inside the closed door, that could be bad.
If you simply bumped it hard, it's probably fine. See how it feels over the next few days. If it's hurting bad still then go see a doctor and get it x-rayed.
