Default Em9 in key of C maj?

I realize E minor is a chord in the c major scale. I wanted to spice it up a bit so I was looking at extensions such as 9.

But the 9 is an F# according to my chord book. The F# doesn't jive in c major. I realize the F# is coming from the 9th degree of the e minor scale.

Would this not be an appropriate chord to play in c major?
