TypeScript Question

Cannot find control with name: formControlName in angular 2 or 4

I found this problem in many question in stackoverflow but no luck. Please help me for figuring out what I am doing wrong.

In component :

ngOnInit() {
this.companyCreatForm = this._formBuilder.group({
name: [null, [Validators.required, Validators.minLength(5)]],
about: [null, [Validators.required]],
businessType: [null, [Validators.required]],
address: this._formBuilder.group({
street: [],
website: [null, [Validators.required]],
mobile: [null, [Validators.required]],
email: [null, [Validators.required]],
pageId: [null, [Validators.required]],
}),
});


Form :

<form [formGroup]="companyCreatForm" (ngSubmit)="creat_company()" novalidate class="form-horizontal">
<div class="panel panel-default" *ngIf="generalPanel">
<div class="panel-heading">General Info</div>
<div class="panel-body">
<div class="form-group">
<label for="comapny name" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Company's Name</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Company's Name" formControlName="name" #refName>
<div *ngIf="companyCreatForm.controls['name'].hasError('required') && refName.touched" class="alert alert-danger">
please enter name
</div>
<div *ngIf="companyCreatForm.controls['name'].hasError('minlength')" class="alert alert-danger">
please enter at least 5 characters
</div>
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="business type" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Business type</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<select name="businessType" formControlName="businessType" class="form-control" [(ngModel)]="defaultType">

<option *ngFor="let type of businessTypes" [value]="type.id">{{type.name}}</option>
</select>
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="about" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Add Company Description</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
​<textarea formControlName="about" class="form-control" id="txtArea" rows="6" cols="70"></textarea>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>

<div class="panel panel-default">
<div class="panel-heading">Contact Info</div>
<div class="panel-body">
<div class="form-group">
<label for="address" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Business Address</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<input type="text" class="form-control" formControlName="street" placeholder="Business Address">
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="website" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Website</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<input type="text" class="form-control" formControlName="website" placeholder="website">
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="telephone" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Telephone</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<input type="text" class="form-control" formControlName="mobile" placeholder="telephone">
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="email" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Email</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<input type="text" class="form-control" formControlName="email" placeholder="email">
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="page id" class="col-sm-3 control-label">Facebook Page ID</label>
<div class="col-sm-8">
<input type="text" class="form-control" formControlName="pageId" placeholder="facebook page id">
</div>
</div>

<div class="form-group">
<label for="about" class="col-sm-3 control-label"></label>
<div class="col-sm-3">

<!--span class="btn btn-success form-control" (click)="openGeneralPanel()">Back</span-->
</div>
<label for="about" class="col-sm-2 control-label"></label>
<div class="col-sm-3">
​<button class="btn btn-success form-control" [disabled]="companyCreatForm.invalid" (click)="openContactInfo()">Continue</button>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</form>

You should specify formGroupName for nested controls

<div class="panel panel-default" formGroupName="address"> <== add this
    <div class="panel-heading">Contact Info</div>
