When sharing report between 2 pro users from different orgnisations, powerbi "creates" a new trial


Here is my issue:

I want to share a report from a pro account  to another pro account (in trial mode) outside the organization. 

I created in Azure directory a new guest user in order to be able to share in powerbi (using the email of the user with a different organization) Then i used the share option of the report towards a user outside of the organization and i selected the email in the list of available user (avaiable as i create it in the AAD). Then the user receives an invitation to connect to the report. 

But when clicking on the link powerbi opens itself with a new trial pro account using the same email than the one for which he has already a pro account (also in trial but existing since a few days already). I don't understand why powerbi is creating another account instead of making the report appearing in the 'shared with me' section.

Can anyone help me understanding and/or give me a tip to achieve what i am looking for?

Thank you
