Subject: formatting a salted SHA-256 hash

So i was using john to crack this password hash:

but when i try to run the command: john --wordlist=wordlist.txt hash.txt it
says: No password hashes loaded (see FAQ)

i already read the faq but it didn't help so im asking here why it is not

i think that the password is encrypted like this but im not sure:

"$SHA$" + salt + "$" + sha256(sha256(password) + salt);
