Is the order "Sie dürfen nicht hier schwimmen" wrong?

I wonder about this too, whether the nicht could negate the dürfen or the hier, is it's correct translation just on a different emphasis, e.g.

you are not allowed to swim here you are not allowed to swim here

I wouldn't want to report it as accurate response unless the alternative translation makes sense in German!

I can't believe ordering the sentence as Hier duerfen sie nicht schwimmen is wrong. It is 100% correct. The answers need to be more elastic with word order.

Sie sind hier nicht erlaubt zu schwimme. Why is it wrong?
