You are using UEFI with LVM (not ZFS), which should work fine.

I remember something about PVE kernel not being able to boot from all
NVME drives. When searching for NVME and Proxmox on the forum, I looks
like adding a rootdelay to the kernel parameters might help. Or
sometimes adding the right modules to the initramfs.
I do not know how to check this for your system.

hope this helps, Arjen
