Why is "Pomoj kaj oranĝoj estas ne similaj." wrong?

"Pomoj kaj orangxoj estas malsimilaj"?

The contrary (mal-) and negation (ne or ne-) often can't replace each other. Sometimes it would change the meaning, sometimes only one form is common.

This is the case in both, English and Esperanto (as well as probably in many other languages).
