Help with making a weld bead

I've not made a weld bead before and could use some help. The image below shows my assembly. The current design calls for the entire cone area to be filled with weld. I tried using a V-groove weld but it fails giving me "Selected faces from different components must shard at least one coincident edge for this weld bead operation". Do the Contacting faces have to have one coincident edge? I wouldn't think so but I'm not sure. I assumed that having the stopping faces coincident mated would satisfy the coincident edge requirement.

The 4 faces of the cones are my contact faces
The top and bottom of the green plate and the top and cone end of the red plate are my stopping faces.
