UPDATE … I did some trial and error and found out the following … The problem does not seem related to any of the plugins. Instead the problem occurs only when “Front page displays” is set to “A static page” AND the front page is set to the page as created per you instructions. I’ve left the front page section unselected for now, but that is not how it should be. Hope this gives you more accurate indications to resolve the problem. Looking forward to you reply.
