This usually means you have some other font installed that claims to
cover the Emoji block, but doesn't actually cover this character.  Try
to find that font, and either uninstall it, or make it member of the
list in face-ignored-fonts, or customize your fontset like you show
above (there's nothing wrong with giving Emacs some help with the
fonts you have).
