I know it has something to do with standing waves but not getting correct explanation.

De-Broglie's hypothesis was simply an incorrect stepping stone to the correct quantum theory that came about at the end of 1926 when Dirac published his transformation theory - it's wrong - forget about it.

But within that model its pretty easy - if its some sort of wave only some waves can fit around a circle.

But like I say - its wrong - the correct answer is the solutions to Schroedinger's equation:
