So why somos and not estamos?

It's relating to character therefore 'ser' rather than 'estar'

I translated "We are always studious" as " "Siempre nosotros somos estudiosos." Why is the former incorrect , as duolingo says? I always understood that word order in Spanish is variable.

I think it is strange to use "somos" with "siempre." If it is something that is inherent and unchanging, then it makes no sense to say "siempre." If it is something that is changing, like a feeling, then it should be "estamos." But I got it wrong using "estamos."
