Cannot launch docker desktop for mac

I installed docker desktop for mac for the first time, but i couldn’t launch it.
I installed it as follows.

・signed up with this official page(Get Started with Docker | Docker) and clicked download button for Mac intel chip.
・opened Docker.dmg file and dragged and dropped Docker.app into Applications.
・did a spotlight search for docker and launched it.
・clicked on the “open” button on the notification screen that says “Docker.app” is an app downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?

No response from the application after this.

Current state
There is a docker app in Applications folder, and Docker in locations(with an eject button).
I cannot launch the app, and use any docker commands.
The other apps work fine and comfortably.

I tried restart my pc, turn off Firewall and FireVault, and installed again, but the exact same thing happened.

I’m on a MacBook Pro 16 (2019) with the latest version of macOS Big Sur 11.6.
