Simple question about create2 failure.

Does create2 increase the nonce of the computed contract’s deployment address ? Or does the first nonce increment operation happens after the first call to the deployed address ?

Both CREATE and CREATE2 opcodes execute the same create in geth.

Following EIP158 the nonce is set to 1 before executing the constructor.

if evm.chainRules.IsEIP158 {
    evm.StateDB.SetNonce(address, 1)


ret, err := run(evm, contract, nil, false)
