Please review the logic behind "Quand on ouvre les cadeaux ?" being incorrect

Please go back to the logic behind why "Comment tu vas" (question - subject - verb) is correct, but "Quand on ouvre les cadeaux ?" is an incorrect question form. They both have the same structure of Question - subject - verb. Thanks you so much for your help. Tom

This relates to:
Questions with qui, que, quoi, quand, où, comment, pourquoi, combien -

Bonjour Tom ! This question has now been updated to accept this option as Correct. The fact is that "Quand on ouvre les cadeaux ?" would be the least colloquial way to order that specific question, hence the issue with our question. However, though sounding a bit off to my native ears due to its lack of use, this is not incorrect, and the question has now been updated accordingly. À bientôt !
