Incorrect first of the year

And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Exodus 12:1-2

This day came ye out in the month Abib. Exodus 13:4

Even in Esther or rather Hadassah where Nisan is mentioned:

In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar.

Hadassah 3:7

Why then does the year remain 5778, when according to the Scriptures we are to be in a new year which would be 5779?

It's bad enough that we have to go elsewhere away from the gregorian calendar to get the correct date, and then to come to this site, which I do appreciate, see that the year is not correct according to the Scriptures.

Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the year because it is held on the traditional anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. Rosh Hashanah marks the start of a new year in the Hebrew calendar (one of four "new year" observances that define various legal "years" for different purposes as explained in the Mishnah and Talmud). It is the new year for people, animals, and legal contracts. The Mishnah also sets this day aside as the new year for calculating calendar years, shmita and yovel years.
