I needed to be connected to 2.4ghz to connect to my robotic lawn mower to wifi and set it up. Tried everything to no avail. Finally I walked outside to a range that the 5ghz would no longer be good and the tablet automatically connected to the 2.4ghz signal. Then I was able to do the setup. Voila!

Your phone is not connected to your router when the hotspot is enabled. It creates its own network and makes cellular data available over WiFi to devices on that network.

It is an obvious Pixel bug. I can't connect my Pixel 3XL to xfinitywifi hotspots either. I am totally gobsmacked that Google allows such bugs to exist in perpetuity. It is totally unbelievable that in some ways Google's stuff is trash and they don't care. It should be noted that my provider is Google Fi. There own stuff does work together... Unbelievable....
