[NC21] adding Cronjob doesn't work

I am running NC21 / Apache / PHP7.4 on on ESX server, so as a virtual machine.

I am trying to add Cron Job using Cron.

I have tried:

crontab -u www-data -e

added: */5 * * * * php -f /var/www/nextcloud/cron.php

crontab -u www-data -l
Which returns:
*/5 * * * * php -f /var/www/nextcloud/cron.php

I have set the Cron Job to Cron in the GUI/ basic.
Source: Background jobs — Nextcloud latest Administration Manual latest documentation

But it doesn’t run, GUI still tells me “some jobs haven’t run for…”

How can i make this work? And where can i find the logfile for this? (not only looking for a solution, but also trying to learn).

EDIT: NEVER MIND AFTER A WHILE IT STARTED TO WORK
