Join 2 separate paths is greyed out

I have drawn a path, used the mirror tool to duplicate the path, selected each path individually and expanded each path. I now want to join the two paths to make one complete path but if I select two end points with the point selection tool 'join path' is greyed out. If I try and join with the pen tool by clicking on the last point of one path 1 and then clicking on the first point of path 2 it simply creates a new point and does not join the 2 paths. I'm a long time user of illustrator on the desktop, working on-the-go with the iPad is a nice idea but my first attempt with ai on iPad has been frustrating.

OK, I worked this out. When I expand the paths they are masked, unmask and in outlines view I can see the mask paths, delete them and now I can select both path end points with the point selection tool and join them with 'join path'
