HTML HTML Forms Choosing Options Create a Select Menu

I wrote <button type="submit">Place Order</button> but it is not correct. Not sure what I'm doing wrong...

I went back and watched the video and I wrote down exactly what he had. I must be missing something!

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <form>
    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
        <option value="red">red</option>
        <option value="yellow">yellow</option>
        <option value="purple">purple</option>
        <option value="blue">blue</option>
        <option value="green">green</option>
        <option value="orange">orange</option>

       <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
                </form>

  </body>
</html>

Hi. You need </select> after the options

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body> 
    <form action="index.html" method="POST">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color"> 
        <option value="red">red</option>
        <option value="yellow">yellow</option>
        <option value="purple">purple</option>
        <option value="blue">blue</option>
        <option value="green">green</option>
        <option value="orange">orange</option>
      </select>
        <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
     </form>
  </body>
</html>

I see! Thank you for your help!
