Depending on the tor version it is either hidden service v2 or v3 which is the default. And I think it is v3 in your case.

Try putting:

HiddenServiceVersion 2

in your hidden service definition and retry.

Please also note that hidden service v2 support will be removed from tor network in the near future (this year if I remember correctly) so you should consider moving to v3 right now.
