Second NVME not showing up, new system

Yes, I can (after some googling on how to do that). Additionally, I just discovered that the 970 had been converted as a storage pool. I deleted the pool and now the drive shows up in disk management (see image). However, when I right click I do not get the normal "Initialize drive" option. Just "New Simple Volume", "Properties", and "Help". Not sure how to get it formatted or partitioned from here.

Try the new simple volume on the unallocated space, give it a drive letter, and so on. 

Built a new system and my second NVME is not showing up in disk management, I'm just trying to use it as secondary storage. I see it in the BIOs but can't find any meaningful way to adjust settings for it specifically. I've built a couple systems before but never had an issue with a drive not showing up. I would appreciate any assistance.

System specs:
-Ryzen 5800x

-ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero
-TridentZ 3600

-RTX 3700 Ventus 3X OC

-Samsung 980 Pro (M.2_1)

-Samsung 970 EVO Plus (M.2_2)

-MSI MAG Coreliquid 360R AIO

-Windows 10 Home

Looks like this solved the issue. New to windows 10 so it was a slightly different process that tripped me up. Thank you very much for the help.
