Is it Ok to put romex in metal conduit?

I want to extend a 110V electric outlet about 15 feet. I plan to put metal conduit in bottom of existing metal outlet with screw on connectors for the conduit, use a screw on connector with a 90 degree & then run about 15' of metal conduit to another location on the wall in garage.

I plan to put new romex in the conduit to new plug.

The hardware store man told me you should never put romex in conduit?

Why is this?
