# SolvePnp determines well the translation but not the rotation

I am trying to extract the pose of a camera knowing five points correspondence between the image and the world. I know the intrinsics and the distortion coefficients and in order to determine the camera pose I am using the solvePnP method. My problem is that the translation vector is right but the rotation does not seem right. I inverted the joint matrix that contains tvec and rvec. If you suspect what could be happening and you need more details please ask. Thank you in advance. My code:

vector<Point2f> contoursCenter; //image points
RNG rng(12345);

for (size_t i = 0; i < contours.size(); i++)
{
Moments m = moments(contours[i], false);
Point2f center = Point2f(m.m10 / m.m00, m.m01 / m.m00);
contoursCenter.push_back(center);
Scalar color = Scalar(rng.uniform(0, 255), rng.uniform(0, 255), rng.uniform(0, 255));
drawContours(drawing, contours, i, color, 2, 8);
circle(drawing, center, 4, color, -1, 8, 0);
}

vector<Point2f> origCenters;
//convert back from bird eye view
perspectiveTransform(contoursCenter, origCenters, homography.inv());
for (auto center : origCenters)
{
Scalar color = Scalar(rng.uniform(0, 255), rng.uniform(0, 255), rng.uniform(0, 255));
circle(image, center, 4, color, -1, 8, 0);
}

resizeWindow("drawing", 1366, 768);
imshow("drawing", image);

//solvePnP
vector<Point3f> worldCoordinates;
// camera perspective
worldCoordinates.push_back(Point3f(0.995, -0.984, 0.005 + 0.945)); //left down circle
worldCoordinates.push_back(Point3f(-0.954, -0.984, 0.005 + 0.945)); //left upper circle
worldCoordinates.push_back(Point3f(0, 0, 1.4)); //ball
worldCoordinates.push_back(Point3f(-0.954, 0.987, 0.005 + 0.945)); // right upper circle
worldCoordinates.push_back(Point3f(0.995, 0.987, 0.005 + 0.945)); // right down circle
