Error: Error creating conda environment 'r-reticulate' [exit code 126]

I'm using MacBook Air (M1, 2020). By default, it came with python2. I installed python3 via homebrew & this is the output on the terminal

➜  ~ which python
➜  ~ which python3

I'm creating an LSTM model in R. However, I'm finding challenges installing tensorflow in R based on this walkthrough TensorFlow for R - Quick start.

path_to_python <- "/opt/homebrew/bin/python3"
virtualenv_create("r-reticulate", python = path_to_python)
install_tensorflow(envname = "r-reticulate")

The error below comes up, when I specifically run install_tensorflow(envname = "r-reticulate")

Installing: tensorflow-deps==2.6
+ '/Users/myname/Library/r-miniconda-arm64/bin/conda' 'create' '--yes' '--name' 'r-reticulate' 'python' '--quiet' '-c' 'apple' '-c' 'conda-forge'

Error: Error creating conda environment 'r-reticulate' [exit code 126]

Based on the reticulate package, below is the output of py_config() function

> py_config()

What could be the problem?
