Why is "Ця" incorrect in this sentence?

Ця is on the same footing as an adjective, it can only describe a noun, cannot be a subject by itself. You can say Ця машина — моя перша. Ця машина моя перша машина. But there has to be something following "ця".

Це is on the same footing as a noun, it can be a subject. Це машина (This is a car). Це моя машина (This is my car). Це моя перша машина.
