Slug based static page url giving 404

Hello

I made a single page “page-services.blade.php” in my views folder and made a page with the slug “services” in wp but the url my-domain.com/services only gives me a 404 error…
The page works fine with the ?page_id query parameter, or if I change permalinks to post name (which should not be relevant since it’s a page and not a post but anyway…).

The root .htaccess file is empty and if I had the usual lines I have in other wp projects the same url directs me to the top page.

Is there any place where I need to add pages names…?
I’m sure it’s just a newbie problem but some help would be very appreciated!

Thank you
