A newly created SharePoint Online site uses the Enterprise Wiki template instead of the Publishing Portal template

When you create a SharePoint Online root site collection by using the Publishing Portal template in Office 365 Enterprise, the newly created site collection uses the Enterprise Wiki template. 

Note This applies to the root site collection only.
This is expected behavior in SharePoint Online. The Publishing Portal template isn't available as a root level site collection template. If you want to use the Publishing Portal template, create the site at a location other than the root URL.
