'Ghost' voicemail

Having just replaced my defunct iPhone 7 with a Samsung S9, on set up my voicemail is displaying one 'new'/unread message left in January (!) but on calling Voicemail there are no messages there to delete, new or otherwise.  Any suggestions as to how I can get rid of this annoying icon and it's reminders that there's an unread message please, folks?

Hi @CarnivalGirl 

Call your mobile from another phone and leave yourself a voicemail.

Listen and delete the voicemail you have just left yourself on your mobile and that should delete the old one that's got stuck too.

Hi @CarnivalGirl

Call yourself from another phone or get a friend to do it and leave yourself a new voicemail. You will then be able to Press 3 and delete all. https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/All-you-need-to-know-about-O2-Voicemail-901/ba-p/547712
