I can't say for sure what you are doing wrong, but I always plant the seeds is some loamy, sandy soil so that the root can penetrate quickly, and keep alot of water up to them, then let it go dry-ish for a day or two, then soak, and soak and soak the soil. After a week or so, I have lovely little Chilli seedlings looking up to the sun.
