inaccurate bounce rate

I have set up a goal to track the URL that my CTA button on a landing page links to, and the URL is for another page within my site. From a campaign source, the goal completion is 100% which means everyone who landed on my page went to the 2nd page, however the bounce rate shows as 91%. Does anyone know what is going on?

Hi Tina :-)
The goal itself may be configured incorrectly and not just matching to the linked page.
Are you able to pls provide a link to the website and a screenshot or further information on the actual

goal setup
