Why cannot run compiled JavaFX 11 class?

This is under macOS Mojave (10.14).
Following instructions at https://openjfx.io/openjfx-docs/#install-javafx, I compiled the sample HelloFX.java via:
javac --module-path $PATH_TO_FX --add-modules=javafx.controls /Users/me/Documents/java/HelloFX.java
But now if I attempt to run that...
java --module-path $PATH_TO_FX --add-modules=javafx.controls /Users/me/Documents/java/HelloFX
... I get error:
Error: Could not find or load main class .Users.me.Documents.java.HelloFX
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: /Users/me/Documents/java/HelloFX
Yet the file reported as not found is there:
ls -l /Users/me/Documents/java/HelloFX.class
-rwxr--r-- 1 me staff 1336 Oct 30 16:01 /Users/murray/Documents/java/HelloFX.class
(I had already changed permissions to add `u+x` in case that was the issue, but apparently that was not the trouble.
(Yes, `$PATH_TO_FX` does point to `javafx-sdk-11/lib`.)
