Google nest Mini 2nd generation cannot connection to both personal hotspot via WiFi or even via blue

Here's my issues,

My friend purchased a Google next mini I believe it's second generation

He has no fixed internet at his place 

So I decided to set up his Google nest Mini  .. the only way I could with the absence of internet buy personal hotspot ng my Wi-Fi find my phone which I have done successfully with Google Chromecast previously

 

Google nest mini does not display my WiFi personal hotspot as an option .... Even when I try to enter the SSID and password manually it does not find the connection

 

 

So then I try this all again using Bluetooth tethering as my internet connection

And achieve the same result it cannot find my Bluetooth SSID personal hotspot and it also can't find it if I enter in manually so without external internet connection it's a useless piece of device

 

Does anyone have any suggestions much appreciated and thank you for your time

So you wouldn't be able to use your phone's Wi-Fi hotspot to setup the nest.  What you would need to do is turn on the hotspot on your friend's phone, connect your phone to his hotspot and through the Google home app setup The nest mini that way.
