Nav not working

Place the ul, h1 and p elements at the top of the page inside an element that represents a group of introductory or navigational content. I placed the <nav> before the UL, LI and H1 and P tags and closed it after, but it still says this is wrong? We only learned three new tags in this area, nav, article, aside. I tried each one but it's wrong??

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <nav>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>
    </nav>
    <h2>Welcome</h2> 
    <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
    </ul>

Replace your <nav> with <header>.

Refer back to the first video in this section titled Semantic HTML: <header>, <footer> and <section>.
