Hi Muhammad,
The problem is caused due to a protocol called HSTS that is implemented in browsers. This blocks any HTTPS redirection as there is a URL mismatch and like you mention this is not an issue if the initial site a user visits is HTTP only. As on now, the only way to resolve is to block all HTTPS traffic until redirection is complete or disable HSTS on the browser.

Thanks for you helpful answer, so the problem is HSTS? and the way to solve the problem is disable HSTS on browser to all my clients?
