  • Hi,

    Follow the steps below to create a site collection by using Central Administration and see if the issue persists.

    To create a site collection, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators SharePoint group on the computer that is running the SharePoint Central Administration website.

    1. On the Central Administration website, in the Application Management section, click Create site collections.

    2. On the Create Site Collection page, in the Web Application section, if the web application in which you want to create the site collection is not selected, on the Web Application menu, click Change Web Application, and then click the web application in which you want to create the site collection.

    3. In the Title and Description section, type the title and description for the site      collection.

    4. In the Web Site Address section, select the path to use for your URL (for example, a wildcard inclusion path such as /sites/, or the root directory (/).

    If you select a wildcard inclusion path, you must also type the site name to use in your site's URL.

    5. Select Team site as a template, leave "select experience version" as 2013 and enter Primary site collection administrator, then click ok.

    Also, check in IIS for bindings. If port 80 is not there, add bindings for port 80 with the hostheader.

    Thanks.

  • from central admin can you see your newly created site collection, when you select view all site collection?

    make sure you have correct binding in IIS.
