Unhappy everytime i try fo tune my strings break

I just got a jackson js32 with a floydrose yesterday but i didn't even get to play it yet
I tried to tune and i broke a string , i changed it but it's the same issue the space between the tuning key and the nut are really tight but the space between the nut and the bridge is loose
Any help ?
Thanks.

Did you unlock the locking nut before you tried tuning?

If you have a Floyd Rose, WHY ARE YOU TUNING WITH THE TUNING KEY?

Use the fine tuners nears the bridge.

Also, review this, several times:

don't tune it really fast just do it slowly and hold the tuning peg so that it can stretch the string out a little.

cross-tune it will go faster and be sure to block the trem if changing gauges. cross-tuning, 6-1-5-2-4-3 evens tension across the bridge, makes tuning faster.

read the floyd rose tutorial.

High e should sound the same as 5th fret B string. If you're having trouble with the tuner use that note as reference.
