Add profiles for your parents, then grandparents, and at some point, hopefully, you will find that one of your ancestors is already connected to the 'tree'.  We have a single family tree, meaning that we don't create duplicate profiles for anyone.  Everyone's ancestors are also someone else's ancestors, so we 'share' the family tree.

but my whole tree is on ancestry, not here
In order to have that link to the Tree, they will need to be here.  (They can also stay on ancestry.)
The only way to connect to the 'wikitree tree' is to have information on the relatives on wikitree.  Wikitree isn't going to read ancestry trees.  Remember, that wikitree wants sources on profiles when created, hopefully not just stating a source is a family tree, since those are user generated and not actual certified sources for dates and information.

I looked a little bit at your Ancestry tree. Of course, I found it the hard way by searching on Ancestry, not realizing that you linked it to your WikiTree profile. Anywho, I suspect a lot of your ancestors are already on WikiTree so you would just need to add your parents and grandparents or maybe great-grandparents to be connected to the main tree. Your tree on Ancestry isn't really sourced, but you may be able to find sources for free on FamilySearch. Living relatives are private on WikiTree so when you add them only you and whoever you add to the trusted list can see their information.

The last person I looked at was Nancy Eliza Van Epps. Her mother was Rodella Louisa Niles. Her father was Ira Niles (Niles-698). So if this is your direct line, you'd need to add your parents and grandparents (and maybe your great-grandparents).

i dont really have enough time to find sources, i just want to find my ancestors
my main goal is to see if im related to famous people, and also see how far back my tree stretches. i dont have enough time to add all the little details when in that time i could be finding more ancestors
Wikitree prides itself on being correctly sourced, so if you wish to add your relatives to the Wikitree Global (Single) Tree, you are going to have to find some sources. At least one source per person. Something to prove they were born, or died and hopefully says who their parents were.

Wikitree does not autopopulate the tree like Ancestry does.  You do need to do some research. That is how genealogy works.
It is the sources that identify your ancestors.
