We will be late (question)

An excercise in a textbook asked me to rewrite the following sentence as a yes/no question: "We will be late". My answer would be: "Do we will be late?". Is it correct?, ´cause it sounds more like a tongue twister to me and never heard it. I would rather say: Are we going to be late? but this last choice methinks isn´t allowed in the proposed excercise. Thanks a lot.

    Use "do" only when there is no other auxiliary verb in the affirmative sentence.
    "We will be late" has the auxiliary "will".
