I did that it redirects to the store with only install/play or buy as gift option

If you can't get it from the site or the app, contact chat support. I had to do the same with Garden Warfare 2 and EA Access a while back. They manually added it to my account

make sure you are logged in, sometimes even if you have just logged into xbox.com, you need to click log in again when you are at the store/game page, I think the site just loads the page faster than it reads logged-in user data so it doesn't "see" you unless you sort of log in again

Move the game to an external drive, unplug it from the console so that it can't detect that you have it, try to purchase the full game license, cancel new download, reconnect external.

Or just delete it first...

Sure, but that takes a lot longer, and data caps are a thing for many people.
