What to do in Zangband

I found a version of Zangband on my computer, version 2.74c Windows.
I decided to try finishing it; I started a game and character is now level 40 (high-elf mage, sorcery+death).
In the (far) past, I finished Angband and other roguelikes.
I always cheat by making copies of savegames, not accepting the permadeath. Please don't judge :-)
But in Zangband, I don't understand what I should do.
When I reach the bottom of a dungeon, am I done there, or I should find some boss monster?
And is there an order in which I should do the dungeons? I see that the one closest to start city is numbered 1 in the big map (key 'M'), then going in the wilderness I see a dungeon 2, but then I see another dungeon numbered 1, so what?
And what are the missions that I see with the pipe '|' sign? Are those the missions that I should do to complete the game? Is there an order?
Sorry for the many questions.

Hi Kontamusse,
The dungeons do not have an end boss. Their number indicates difficulty and depth, 5 & 6 go really deep.
Missions that you receive in a town building are optional. The remaining missions are the end condition of the game.

Cheers, Willem.

Thanks for the prompt answer, I did not expect it :-)
So, just to be sure that I understand correctly: this means that once I reach bottom in dungeon '2', there is no reason to go to another dungeon '2'; I should go for a dungeon '3'. Right?
