URL Scheme seems to only work properly when Obsidian is already open

Steps to reproduce

When using the URL Scheme to open a specific note, it will only work if Obsidian is already open. If obsidian is not currently running, opening the URL will open Obsidian, but not the specific note passed in with the URL.

If Obsidian is currently open, running the exact same URL again will cause the required note to open.

Expected result

Obsidian should open to the specified note.

Actual result

Obsidian opens but does not open the specified note.
