Why can't I use "seconde" instead of "deuxieme"?

Why is "La fille deuxieme est belle" rejected? Is it that belle is an overstatement?

I assume that the difference between "jolie" and "belle" should be the same as the one between pretty and beautiful.

Therefore it is not really an overstatement but probably a different set of criteria.
