You need to set store emulation inside your code. Like this below way :

 * @var \Magento\Store\Model\App\Emulation
protected $appEmulation;

 * @param \Magento\Store\Model\App\Emulation $appEmulation
public function __construct(
      \Magento\Store\Model\App\Emulation $appEmulation
) {
      $this->appEmulation = $appEmulation;

public function getImageUrl()
      $this->appEmulation->startEnvironmentEmulation($storeId, \Magento\Framework\App\Area::AREA_FRONTEND, true);
      $this->imageHelper->init($product, 'product_thumbnail_image')->getUrl();

Clean cache and check it.

I would suggest :

1 - Check where is really located your images.

2 - Go into the imageHelper and debug it, check if the issue comes from the recording of your image location

After that you may want to create a new Helper overriding the magento one to fix your issue by adapting the process (probably the graph ql root media file isn't properly registered if i had to guess without seing anything).


That being said; why you don't just get the image using your $product object ? $product->getThumbnail()
