WordPress returns “The link you followed has expired” error page whenever I add a new site, add a user etc

I have a WordPress Multisite (subdomains) instance running on a VPS which seems to be working as expected a part from the fact whenever I add a user or add a site a “The link you followed has expired” page is returned and something happens.

I use Nginx and php7.3-fpm.

Here the config file:

server {
listen 80;
server_name www.domain.name domain.name *.domain.name;

return 301 https://www.domain.name$request_uri;
}

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server_name domain.name;

ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.name/fullchain.pem;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.name/privkey.pem;
include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-nginx.conf; # managed by Certbot
ssl_dhparam /etc/letsencrypt/ssl-dhparams.pem; # managed by Certbot

return 301 https://www.domain.name$request_uri;
}

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server_name www.domain.name;

root /var/www/wordpress;

access_log /var/log/nginx/domain.name.access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/domain.name.error.log;

ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.name/fullchain.pem;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.name/privkey.pem;
include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-nginx.conf; # managed by Certbot
ssl_dhparam /etc/letsencrypt/ssl-dhparams.pem; # managed by Certbot

include global/common.conf;

}
