Unable to deploy new site with Github repo from Netlify API

I’m trying to deploy a new site via NetlifyAPI with a private Github repo. When I deploy for the first time the site, I got the following error inside the first deploy :

3:51:47 PM: Build ready to start
3:51:49 PM: build-image version: d7b3dbfb0846505993c9a131894d1858074c90b4 (focal)

But, if I trigger the “Retry” button, the second deploy works fine :
