Please have a look at the FBX reference in the wiki:

and particularly this page:

As explained there, you need to export terrain separately using a Micro exporter node. Aside from that, from your screenshots it looks like it's working as expected.

I should say FBX export doesn't enable you to replicate the complete TG scene in another app. So much of what TG does is based on procedural shaders and there is no way to export those. The idea of the FBX import/export is to allow you to export the basics of the scene which means you can set up and render elements in another app which can be composited with the scene rendered in TG.
