Docker Registry is not providing appropriate reference key through API's

Hi Folks,
I had launched the docker private registry in my local machine. When I was trying to delete docker images from the docker registry. I’m facing issue of an invalid digest. Later I observed that the digest generated while docker push and digest provided by registry API are not the same.

Here are the commands I have followed

Command used to launch registry: sudo docker run -d -p 5000:5000 --restart=always -e REGISTRY_STORAGE_DELETE_ENABLED=true --name registry registry:2

pushed some dummy image to registry: sudo docker push localhost:5000/registry:2 The push refers to repository [localhost:5000/registry] b3f465d7c4d1: Pushed a5f27630cdd9: Pushed 239a096513b5: Pushed f5b9430e0e42: Pushed 3e207b409db3: Pushed 2: digest: sha256:e09ed8c6c837d366a501f15dcb47939bbbb6242bf3886270834e2a0fa1555234 size: 1363

API used to get digest:curl -v -X GET http://localhost:5000/v2/registry/manifests/2
Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, GET is already inferred.
