The flange should sit on top of the tile so the bottom of the flange sits on top of the tile. If you just replaced it you can build it up with spacers/extenders (see attached pic) which you can get at any plumbing supply house and possibly even the big box stores. It sounds like you're not getting a good seal with the wax ring because your flange is too low.
