Problems creating a static route (or any route)

I have been using this website to read about routing tables and static routes, but I can’t seem to get my own static route going.

Here is the situation:

-> PC:
1x Wifi NIC 192.168.1.19 with mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.1.1
1x LAN NIC 172.16.0.1 with mask 255.255.0.0

-> ESXi Server
LAN NIC 172.16.0.3 with mask 255.255.0.0 (Management Network)

-> Windows Server 2012 VM (runs on ESXi Server)
LAN NIC 172.16.0.4 with mask 255.255.0.0 and gateway 172.16.0.1 (???)

The nodes in the 172.16.0.0 network can ping one another.

Now I want the VM to be able to connect to the internet, so I figured I had to make a route on my PC, since it has 2 interfaces.

I did route add 172.16.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 192.16.1.19 but that did not work.
What am I not doing correctly?
Or can I not use a static route here?
