Text wrap around a number 8 symbol

me and my project again,

I’m wondering how my design will look if the text follows the curve of the visual anchor of the piece – a 470 pt Helvetica “8”.

However, after creating outlines for the symbol(I tried expanding, I guess the feature has the same purpose) and Object>Text Wrap>Make ; the type doesn’t conform to the shape.

Any idea what could be causing this? And possible workarounds?


The 8 needs to be in the foreground otherwise it won’t work.
Or an other option is to manipulate the text frame directly.
