Popover nav missing

I’m trying to navigate from page1 to page2 inside a popover component. When pushing views in the popoverPage navController the new page appear in the app viewport and not inside the popover.

Ionic Framework : ionic-angular 3.9.2
@ionic/app-scripts : 3.1.8

In an old project this behavior works fine:

Ionic Framework : ionic-angular 3.3.0
@ionic/app-scripts : 1.3.7

While Investigating I found out:

The component resolved does not contains the ion-nav wrapper as expected in the old versions.

am I doing something wrong?

Thanks you.

MWithout having done this I would believe you need a second nav instance linking to a second ion-nav in the poperover. So the navctrl.push/setroot methods work on that dom element instead of the main viewport

So maybe google on two ion-navs in one app?
