Create SharePoint Link to A File Another Document Library



I have files (PDF, Excel) residing in Document Library A. I want to create links to these documents using Flow that are housed in Document Library B. 


My issue is: after link creation, if I click the newly created link it is blocked in browser. Furthermore, downloading and trying to open the link also does not work. 


Flow overview:

-Get files (properties only) on the source folder where I want to pass the links

-Iterate through the list and create sharing link for a file or folder. Confirming the sharing link works because if I copy it from output directly into browser, I am able to open the correct file

-Create file from sharing link. I believe this is where the problem lies. The media type in the output is not URL.
