Array Method

I'm writing a method that takes a single parameter which is an array of ints and returns the number of elements in that array that are greater than the first element. My code is as follows:

When I enter into the method call new int[] {1,2,3}, it returns 2 which is correct. But when I enter in the method call new int[] {2,1,3}, it again returns 2 when it was expected to return 1. I can't figure out why it's doing this.
