OK, I think I understood everything up until here, and this is expected
behaviour as I think you understand.

But I'm not following exactly what you've done here. It sounds like you
have misconfigured something, or if you've created a new vault then
you've forgotten to create the initial image. But without seeing what
your actual configuration is, it's very difficult to spot any mistakes
in it! So please give more detail.
