What did you exactly do, and what error messages did you receive, what
problems do you have? Just telling us that you have a problem is not
really sufficient.

You create a key, then create a certificate signing request. This you
send  to your CA. It will come back with the CA's signature.

Your key doesn't have a "subject", but your certificate request does,
and if it doesn't match the of the signed certificate something went
wrong. Public key information must also match.
