Get "Group: no capability to append children" when trying to add new shape to an existing scene

public class D3Panel extends JPanel {
	
	private BranchGroup root;

	public void run() {
	    this.setLayout(new BorderLayout());	       	    
        GraphicsConfiguration config = SimpleUniverse.getPreferredConfiguration();
        Canvas3D canvas3D = new Canvas3D(SimpleUniverse.getPreferredConfiguration());
        add(canvas3D, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        SimpleUniverse universe = new SimpleUniverse(canvas3D);
        root = new BranchGroup();
        root.setCapability(BranchGroup.ALLOW_DETACH | 
        				   BranchGroup.ALLOW_CHILDREN_EXTEND | 
        				   BranchGroup.ALLOW_CHILDREN_WRITE);
        
	    LineArray line=new LineArray(2,LineArray.COORDINATES);      
	    line.setCoordinate(0,new Point3f(10.0f,10.0f,5.0f));
	    line.setCoordinate(1,new Point3f(0.0f,0.0f,-10.0f));  
	    root.addChild(new Shape3D(line));

	    universe.getViewingPlatform().setNominalViewingTransform();
	    universe.addBranchGraph(root);
	    repaint();
	    
		BranchGroup group = new BranchGroup();  
		group.setCapability(BranchGroup.ALLOW_DETACH);
		group.setCapability(BranchGroup.ALLOW_DETACH | 
				   		    BranchGroup.ALLOW_CHILDREN_EXTEND | 
				   		    BranchGroup.ALLOW_CHILDREN_WRITE);
	    LineArray line2=new LineArray(2,LineArray.COORDINATES);      
	    line2.setCoordinate(0,new Point3f(10.0f,-10.0f,-5.0f));
	    line2.setCoordinate(1,new Point3f(0.0f,0.0f,-10.0f));  
	    group.addChild(new Shape3D(line2));
	    root.addChild(group);       // ====> Group: no capability to append children
