PNG does not support layers.  MNG is intended for multilayer or animated
PNG files.

(Just in case you thought otherwise Macromedia Fireworks did create their
own private version of PNG which included layers but it is secret and not
actually a part of standard PNG files.)

Layered file formats you could use include XCF and PSD (and in theory you
could even use TIFF, GIF, and MNG but better not to use those unless you
have a specific reason to).
