Masbooq mistakenly making salaam with the imaam

Q: I missed the first rakaah in a jamaat salaah. When the imaam said salaam to the right, I mistakenly also made salaam, but I did not do salaam to the left. Did I have to do sajdah sahw after completing my missed rakaah because of this mistake?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
