HTML Deep Dive List Code Challenge

I somehow can't get through exercise 5 of the Code Challenge. It asks to put a nested ordered list to an already existing ul list item. This is the code I used and when looked at it in preview, it gets the job done, however i get the feedback "Bummer! Try adding the ordered list inside the list item "Shapes". (Of course i tried empty list items, but this doesn't solve the problem.) What am i doing wrong?

<ul>
   <li>Shapes</li>
      <ol>
         <li>Stop</li>
      </ol>
   <li>Colors</li>
</ul>

Your ol needs to be inside a li.

<!-- A list element (i.e. <ul> or <ol> )  can only contain an <li></li> -->

<ul>
   <li>
      <ol>
         <li></li>
      </ol>
   </li>
   <li></li>
</ul>
