Will the bitcoins still arrive at the first address?

  • what wallet do you use? – Suncatcher Nov 21 '19 at 17:39

My guess, without knowing what exactly you did or which wallet you are using, is that you clicked again on the "receive bitcoin" button. Every time you do that a new address is created. This is for security/privacy reasons (you should not reuse addresses).

Anyways normally all addresses (actually their corresponding keys) created this way are automatically saved in your wallet so you should be good.
