That's a typical permissions issue - you can use the permissions analyzer to determine which settings are incorrect.

Difficult to say what the issue is without a link to the site, but you would need to confirm they were imported.
If the paths were incorrect, they won't have been imported and you will need to start over.

It's a new site so now would be the time to move it.

Ensure you update the Board URL once you have.

Google will automatically update the index as it crawls those URLs and they are forwarded to the new ones.
