There will be timing marks on both of the upper pulleys that needs to line up with the timing 'V' mark on the cover behind them. There are index marks on the lower pulley as well. All these need to be lined up perfectly before you install the new belt. Its best to get everything lined up BEFORE removing the old belt, but it sounds like its too late for you to do that. https://youtu.be/DI60MOkf168

what do you recommend me to do or to look for help, thank you

You have to remove the cover again and check that all the pulleys line up with the timing marks. If they don't, remove the belt and start over. youtube might have a video to help.
