You can not just add oil and expect an instantaneous change to your oil level readout. After adding oil you must drive around and let the sensor calculate the new oil level. Looks like you've over filled it.

From the owners manual:

Checking oil level
Your car is equipped with an electronic oil level
monitor.
The oil level can be displayed when the engine
is warm. Continuous short distance travel or a
very sporty driving style may make measurement
impossible.
