Problem Changing Wallpaper in Fluxbox

I tried changing the ~/.fluxbox/startup file by adding
fbsetbg -f /.../pictures/wallpaper.png

but when I restart the wallpaper flashes for a second then it goes back to the default grayish background.

I'm not quite sure if this is the correct solution or not.
I'm using Artwiz style and I have to comment out the background
color lines in config file in /usr/share/fluxbox/styles.
