Apparently it doesn't accept "my oldest daughter", even though this is literally true.

Same, only I used 'eldest'.

I was thinking of putting it too but if there is only one daughter, you might say first daughter, but you are unlikely to say eldest.

That is because, I suspect, we don't have the context to know it is his eldest, but we know it is definitely his first.
