Invite Users - Email Didn't Direct To Signup Form

New-ish to Netlify.
I wanted to access the NetlifyCMS admin pages.
So I found the section under the Identify tab for “send email to User”.
(Btw, I’d previously gone through the Identify section under Settings to enable git-gateway, etc, but I’m not sure that has to do with this)

Sent myself a “You have been invited to join” email, and it contained an “Accept the Invite” link.
But that only took me to my home page.
ie. not the Login or Signup form I was expecting to be directed to.

The URL had a token in it, eg:

So I modified the URL to include /admin/, as per below.
And this successfully got me to the “Enter password to complete signup” form.

So all good in the end.
But any idea what I failed to do, so that it directed me to the signup page in the first place?

Many thanks in advance!
