Cloudflare cant connect to my droplet

I have installed LEMP stack, Virtual Min and Wordpress in my droplet. I have assigned a floating IP to my droplet. I have registered my domain with cloudflare and I have created A record with the floating ip as the value and a cname www with ‘@’. But when I try to access my domain it returns a 521:Host down error. Can someone help me point my domain to my droplet?
