There is a bug which causes the parent spreadsheet to be inserted when you try to insert a form. Google is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. Until it is fixed you can use this workaround:

  • Open the spreadsheet with the form
  • Select Form > Embed form in a web page
  • Copy the 'embed code' (starts <iframe src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/embeddedform?formkey=...")
  • Open the Sites page where you want to insert the form
  • Open the editor and then open the HTML editor
  • Paste the embed code copied above
  • Click Update
  • Click Save
