I probably shouldn't be answering, because my OAUTH2 expertise comes from a 
presentation by Jim Manicore of Manicode.com,
but ...

I may be confused, but I suspect that you might be .. based on my alleged 
understanding of the typical OAUTH2 flow, which is something like shown in 
the attached oauth2_flow.png.

As in that diagram, the token the client gets from the OAUTH2 server goes 
to the application server, which then sends it to the OAUTH2 server to 
confirm the client has permission to access the services of the application 
server, and that the client has granted permission to the application 
server to act on the client's behalf.

(One of the examples given was an online pizza ordering experience, where 
OAUTH2 was used to post the customer's rave reviews on Yelp, with Yelp 
being the OAUTH2 server, and the pizza palace being the application server.)

Now, I may be misunderstanding a) what you're trying to do and b) OAUTH2, 
but if so you might want to post an equivalent diagram with the correct 
flow shown.
