Problem with creating staff on new blog

I have created a new blog for my wife, to be used to describe a current business trip.

It’s running the latest version of Ghost on a RaspberryPi 4 with 4Gb memory, Bullseye version of Raspian (headless), mariadb, nginx, and NODE_MAJOR=18 node.js. The url is

For transactional e-mails I have configured and tested GMAIL which is working.

I have created the OWNER in her name, using her e-mail but I want to create my account as a staff administrator. I receive the “welcome … please join” e-mail but when I click on the “clikc her to activate your account” button the browser (Chrome) takes me to her owner account. There is a blue banner which says something like “you must sign out to create your account” which I do but my account is not created.

I should also say that my Ghost Raspberry Pi is running behind another Raspberry Pi which has another instance of NGINX running as a proxy server. The code in the reverse proxy server is copied from the Ghost documentation.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated
