Having a big problem with opening UI with using tight VNC viewer

DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04

I tried everything to open viewer but nothing really worked.

I set up these two but nothing worked.
ssh -L 5901: -N -f -l root {IP address}
ssh -L 5901:localhost:5901 -N -f -l root {IP address}
when I typed in vncserver -l I get this message "Couldn't start Xtightvnc; trying default font path", even though I installed "apt-get install xfonts-base", still didn't work.

I always get "Error in TightVNC Viewer: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it".

I disabled firewalls and restarted from beginning but nothing worked.

Could you please help me out with this.
