do you have a manifest.json or manifest.webmanifest file in the root of app dir (or in public folder and then linking with metadata)?

export const metadata = {
  title: "Create Next App",
  description: "Generated by create next app",
  manifest:'/public/manifest.json'
};

do you wanna see my manifest file ?

firstly, you can put the manifest in root of /app and not worry about adding to menifest
secondly, anything in /public is accessible in / (ie it would be just .manifest.json)

import withPWAInit from "@ducanh2912/next-pwa";
const nextConfig = {};

const withPWA = withPWAInit({
  dest: "public",
  cacheOnFrontEndNav:true,
  aggressiveFrontEndNavCaching:true,
  reloadOnOnline:true,
  disable: false,
  register: true,
  scope: "/app",
  sw: "service-worker.js",
  workboxOptions:{disableDevLogs:true}
});

export default withPWA({

});
