Whenever you launch a collection from the top level, the collection is displayed as a browse page instead of content view. For example, if you create a collection and set it to Content View, opening that collection from the app menu will display the browse page, but opening that same collection from a different collection (such as the "home" collection) will honor Content View and display the first article. My guess is that you launched your collections from the app menu.

It sounds like your app has 145 articles all in the same collection. Here are a couple ways to handle this:

Option 1 - If you don't want an article to appear on a browse page, select "Hide from Browse Page" in article properties. Users will be able to jump to that article from a link or swipe to it horizontally, but it won't appear on the browse page.

Option 2 - Create 12 sub-collections that appear as cards on your home page. Add the articles to these sub-collections. If you don't want to bother with browse pages, set each sub-collection to Content View so that the first article appears.

I would go with Option 2.
