EDIT: Suzanne's answer was right on, I only needed to wait for the search engines to do their work. Chalk this post up to impatience in the Internet age :D Removing the links from my post due to analytics noise.

I've just created a new website on Squarespace (which is still a work-in-progress) for my new business operating out of Vietnam, link is <removed>. The domain name was only registered today, March 25, 2019. After adding my domain onto Google Search Console, I started working to make my website appear in the Google Search and added the sitemap into Search Console. Made sure that my homepage was set correctly on Squarespace, and added in SEO titles and descriptions for the existing pages, even unfinished ones. 

The URL Inspection Tool shows that my URL is on Google and that it is "indexed, not submitted in sitemap" (added a screenshot below). That's when my confusion starts. I did a site:search using site:<removed>, but there were no results found. Searching for my company's name "Mc-Cast Engineering" only brought up results of my existing company based in Singapore.

What I would like to seek advice on are:
1) Based on the reports "URL is on Google" and "indexed, not submitted in sitemap", does that mean my site is successfully indexed? 

2) Does being indexed mean that the site should show up on site:search  (including the normal Google search results)? If not, what else should I do?

3) Will the similarity between the Singapore and Vietnam websites affect the ranking of the new website?

4) Do I need to face the harsh truth that my website simply isn't of good enough quality to show up on the search results?

Hope someone can lead me to SEO enlightenment. Thanks for reading!

Note: Squarespace provides the sitemap.xml file automatically, which omits the link <removed>. I'm still trying to figure out how I can include it into my sitemap.

Hi Kheng Yik Ming, 

Go to new search console and enter your home page: https://mc-castengineering.com/ and start inspecting your website. If your website is not indexed, click " REQUEST INDEXING". Wait for 2 to 24 hours to see your website on Google search results. 

In you XML sitemap: https://mc-castengineering.com/sitemap.xml instead of proper home page URL (https://mc-castengineering.com/) the duplicated URL (https://mc-castengineering.com/home) is added. 
So remove https://mc-castengineering.com/home and add https://mc-castengineering.com/ in your XML sitemap.

Hi there, I’m facing a similar issue.y previous site was Innerpur.com and I migrated to Innerpur.sg 4 weeks ago. 

My new sitemap has been submitted to Google and it’s been indexed according to my search console panel. However, I still can’t find it in Google searches. 

I’m contrast, my old site is appearing in searches and it shows an error when I click on the link. It’s supposed to redirect to my new site. I’ve verified that the redirection works perfectly when I enter my old URL into the address bar. But somehow, it breaks down when I click on it from the results page in Google searches.
