You are doing nothing wrong....as the MSDN states (emphasis added):

"In the FormView control, a page of data is a SINGLE BOUND RECORD. If you set the AllowPaging property of the FormView control to true, the FormView control automatically adds user interface (UI) controls for paging. You can customize the UI for paging by adding a PagerTemplate template. For details, see Paging in a FormView Web Server Control."

As mentioned above FV will display one item at a time.
And if you want to display multiple rows you will have to use another controls like Repeater/DataList or ListView.
