Why does Local installation gets different results than https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search

Hello
I installed a local version of Nominatim on Ubuntu 22.04, using the instructions from here: Basic Installation - Nominatim 4.3.0 Manual
Downloaded and imported this database:
https://download.geofabrik.de/asia/israel-and-palestine-latest.osm.pbf
When searching for coordinates of an address, sometimes I get wrong results.
Trying to understand the reason, I ran the same query on Nominatim Demo - here, I got correct results.
I used the wikimedia data, as recommended.
Are the results supposed to be the same? What am I missing?
Thanks
