Has anyone got the NFC function to work?

I am trying to activate a scene when I put my phone next to an NFC tag.

When I get to the part when ewelink says “Please hold your phone’s NFC area close to the tag” then the phone makes the NFC sound and a message “New tag collected” appears. The message looks like it is from the system or some other app, I mean it does not share the nice visual format of the ewelink app. And that is it, I cannot proceed.

How can I get rid of this?

(phone is Xiaomi Mi 9)
