Solidworks, SWEEP CUT problem, "feature could not be...self intersecting geometry?

Solidworks, SWEEP CUT problem, "feature could not be...self intersecting geometry?

Hi everyone,

I'm new on this forum and my main program to work wit is Creo parametric.
I'm new to solidworks, and trying to do a variable sweep cut with a path curve (orange in image) and a guide curve (purple in image).
I made a pierce relation with both curves. I can select my path and guide curves and my sweep profile, but Solidworks gives an error message.
"feature could not be generated because it would produce self intersecting geometry" The sweep will end in a bended cone along the outer wall of the solid cylinder.
What am i doing wrong, or can somebody give me advice on this feature?
Thanks!
