Sometimes, after doing all these also, I can not see the Create site pages option. So we have to enable the site page option in SharePoint Online admin center.

Open SharePoint Online admin center and go to the settings page. If you are using modern SharePoint Online admin center, then you can also directly access the Settings page from the below URL:

https://yourtenantname-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/online/TenantSettings.aspx

Then you will see an option as Site Pages. Here make sure Allow users to create Site Pages option is enabled.

If not enabled, enable it and it will take 3/4 hours to reflect.
