You haven't charged it long enough. Plug the charger in and wait 24 hours. It's a charger, not an external power supply.

Laptops can run on their "chargers" (which are actually external power supplies) without even having a battery in the laptop - phones and tablets can't. Most phones and all tablets need more power to run than a charger port can supply.
