Wave Particle duality

I was thinking about wave particle duality, and it's always made out to seem so mysterious and paradoxical. But then it occurred to me that it might just be the same thing as mass energy equivalence, as waves are just energy and particles are 'mass'. Is this right or am I missing something?
