Error when using tinyMCE in my wordpress settings page

I tried using tinyMCE directly from the package included with:

<script src="//tinymce.cachefly.net/4.0/tinymce.min.js"></script>

And then I just set this in my jQuery file:

tinymce.init({
    selector: "textarea"
});

Now, for some reason that I can't understand, all my textareas are hidden (visibility:hidden) and nothing else is showing up. I am modifying the DOM in this file with jQuery but I tried to insert a non-modified textarea and still nothing shows up. Is there something with Wordpress that makes this error? I am writing this in the functions.php-file.

Or maybe you should simply use wp_editor() php function
