  • You could check if the SharePoint online site you enter exists.
    We should enter the existing the SharePoint online site in the SharePoint migration tool.
    Updated:
    You check if the first sign-in account has the permission on the SharePoint online site.

    Things to keep in mind before migration
    1- Check for your old SharePoint site or site collection features, customization's any third party solutions if installed in your SharePoint sites.
    2- check the account has permission on SharePoint online and use same account
    3- Make sure you use the right migration tool for migrating and this varies based on your SharePoint design structure and topology
    4- Usually bringing changes in SharePoint online specially site collection level will take some time you should check after few minutes or more
    5- Check the logs generated and fix the bugs which prevents SharePoint migration
