rocketboy is on a distinguished road

I am trying to create a mesh around the nose cone + body of a rocket. In the solver, I will use an axisymmetric model so I drew the half 2D cross section of the rocket.

I am trying to mesh this geometry, with the cells being more biased towards the surface of the nose cone. I've attached pictures of the process I used and the resulting mesh. I would like the entire mesh to be structured, but the right portion is coming out unstructured. I am doing this in the Ansys Mesher.

I am wondering what should I do to fix the right portion of my mesh? I am trying to make my mesh similar to the one in this tutorial:
