Well, I don't think anything is "wrong", but I'd encourage a look here;


There you'll see that fm synthesis functionality is build into the
humble SinOsc already for your convenience.
To use it you can send your preferred modulator to its input;
SinOsc mod => SinOsc car => dac;

Set your settings according to that page and your own taste and off you go.
I seem to remember we are borrowing some oscillators from SC, of these
are amongst those you should be able to make it sound the same.

Hope that helps,
