  • 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.
    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

    I hope this information is helpful, if you find this helpful please mark it as an answer.
