Why is the optimization problem solved by lsqnonlin but not by fmincon ?

Hi All,
Equation 1:
Equation 2:
Equation 1 represents the exact dynamics of a system and equation 2 is the approximate dynamics that will give the same time course profiles as equation 1, upon optimization. For the sake of understanding, let us assume eq(1) gives experimental values and equation 2 are the predicted values.
The objective function defined has a cost function that minimizes the difference between state variables ϕ and , by optimizing parameter which are the control variables.
I've set up this problem using fmincon and lsqnonlin. lsqnonlin gives me the optimal solutions but fmincon doesn't. I am not sure if the problem is with the way I have defined the objective function for fmincon.
I'm attaching the code here. Could someone have a look and help me in sorting out the error?
Here are my results,
