No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

Hi I'm new in this forum. I'll be thankful if there is someone who can help me.
I'm using vsftpd on my ubuntu 20.04 !
I tested at the first vsftpd without SSL with active mode. It worked fine! But when I enabled my SLL with active mode I get an error to pass to the passive mode! So I passed to passive mode and I add in my /etc/vsftp.conf:
vsftpd_log_file=/var/log/vsftpd.log
tcp_wrappers=YES
pasv_enable=Yes
pasv_min_port=40000
pasv_max_port=50000
pasv_address=51.91.250.89
allow_writeable_chroot=NO
user_sub_token=$USER
local_root=/home/$USER/ftp
userlist_enable=YES
userlist_file=/etc/vsftpd.userlist
userlist_deny=NO
this is my firewall status !
root@VPS:/# sudo ufw status
Status: active

To                         Action      From
--                         ------      ----
Nginx HTTP                 ALLOW       Anywhere
20:21/tcp                  ALLOW       Anywhere
40000:50000/tcp            ALLOW       Anywhere
Nginx HTTP (v6)            ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)
20:21/tcp (v6)             ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)
40000:50000/tcp (v6)       ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)
and if I test my vsftpd server in WinSCP i get this error !

Re: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

Is the 51.91.250.89 an IP address of your server?
Anyway, this is not really WinSCP question (unless other FTP clients work). Consider asking at an appropriate site, like https://superuser.com/.
