nesting while function

Hi
t = 0; i = 1; j = 1;
While[i <= 3,
  While[j <= 2,
    t = t + 1;
    j = j + 1];
  i = i + 1]

give the result for t=2 and not 6 as should be

but 
t = 0; Do[
         Do[
             t = t + 1;
              , {j, 2}];
  , {i, 3}]

give the value of 6 for t
is this a wrong behaviour for the "While" function ? or i miss something.
thanks
