HTML Aligning social media icons

Hi Guys,

Brand new to coding so please bear with me on here if I ask silly questions, each new trick is a brick for this house I am trying to build

I am trying to create a group of 4 social media icons that will sit side by side in the same location on the bottom right to my web pages. I was given some vague instructions by my tutor but they don't seem to be working, maybe you can see what I am doing wrong here.

An example of what they should appear like is in the image attached

This is my HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang='en'>


<title> Home Page </title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/styles.css" />
<meta charset="utf-8">


<div class="container">
<img src='images/logo.png' style="width:180px;height:180px alt="logo"

<li><a href="index.html"> HOME </a></li>
<li><a href="tour.html"> TOUR </a></li>
<li><a href="tickets.html"> BUY TICKETS </a></li>
<li><a href="gallery.html"> GALLERY </a></li>
<li><a href="about.html"> ABOUT </a></li>

<img src='images/pic1.png' alt="home page image" class="image">

<div class="social-icons">
<img src='images/whatsapp.png' style="width:50px;height:50px" alt="whatsapp"
<img src='images/facebook.png' style="width:50px;height:50px" alt="facebook"
<img src='images/insta.png' style="width:50px;height:50px" alt="insta"
<img src='images/twitter.png' style="width:50px;height:50px" alt="twitter"

This is my CSS

body {
margin: 0;
background: #ffffff;
/* white */
color: white;
font-size: 18px;
font-family: "roboto", sans-serif;
font-weight: 300;

.container {
width: 80%;
margin: 0 auto;

header {
background: #121326;
height: 200px;

.logo {
float: left;
position: absolute;
left: 20px;
top: 0;

.image {
width: 100%;

nav {
float: right;

nav ul {
padding: 20px;
list-style: none;

nav li {
display: inline-table;
margin-left: 300px;
padding-top: 50px;

nav a {
color: #ffffff;
text-decoration: none;
text-transform: upper


nav a:hover {
color: #FCBA35;

.sidebar-image-gallery { width: 210px; }

.social-icons {

position: absolute;display: inline-block;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
right: 0;

I apologise if I didn't need to post the entire lines of code, and I am aware there is some code in there that should not be there, but I am learning. The issue is, my icons don't appear bottom right and seem to be on top of each other, but I can only see one.

Where are you learn to code the internet? Don't go back!! When you use position: anything; your on the highway to hell adding floats just makes things worst and spells trouble my friend. And your in trouble. The class LOGO uses both!! such a travesty.

Learn to do HTML with Grid-CSS. This is the year 2020 and this is how you code web sites. Your starting out, but on the wrong path.
Learn Grid-CSS

You should run the code you posted to see what we see. Hope you know we can't see things on your harddrive and that means the images.

Here's a little more info:
The IMG tag needs to have a closing '>'. None of yours does.
Your attachment shows three sections (divs if you like). They should be inside of a container. Yours arn't.
In the <body> tag you set the background color to white and the font color to white. Can't read anything.
<div class="container">

HEADER is just a simple name for a DIV. Both of these start together and end together
SO they are the same thing. Only one of them is needed.

<img src='images/logo.png' style="width:180px;height:180px" alt="logo" class="logo">
One of the attributes of the IMG tag is the width and the height. You do not need to have a style attribute.
<img src='images/logo.png' width="180" height="180" alt="logo" class="logo">

I'd give you the HTML code, but you will/should know and understand CSS-Grid and/or flex box.
