Firstly, I am a complete novice to QGIS and I have only been using this software for one week. Therefore, I apologise if I am not using the correct terminology. I have added vector layers (ESRI shapefiles) for the country of Iceland showing railroads, water bodies, and roads. The coordinate reference system (CRS) for my vector data is WGS 84/UTM zone 27 N (see images 1 and 2).
I am a student and my tutor is not available to provide help for another few weeks and I have deadlines. I have to add two XYZ tiles: (1) an 'Open Street Map' and (2) a 'Google Satellite' image that I downloaded from Hatari labs (see line below). The idea is to insert an XYZ tile into my workspace to show Iceland in context to Greenland and the UK.

When I add either XYZ tile to my workspace, the resolution and scale are acting really strange (see images 3 and 4). The final result is supposed to look like images 5 and 6.
In the tutorial, when the XYZ tiles download, the vector data is positioned exactly on top of Iceland to the correct scale, and you can also see Iceland in context to Greenland and the UK. However, when I add my XYZ tiles, my vector data is not on top of Iceland. Instead, these XYZ tiles are located right next to Greenland, which is not where Iceland is realistically located.
How I have tried to solve the issue?
As I mentioned beforehand, my tutor is not available right now to advise, although, he sent me an email suggesting that this is a CRS issue. I have tried changing the CRS for both XYZ tiles to WGS 84/UTM zone 27 N to be identical to my vector data and it did not work. In my tutorials, the CRS for both of these XYZ tiles are EPSG:3857 - WGS 84/Pseudo-Mercator, and my tutor did not change their CRS's. I don't know how to correct this issue and I have been trying for two days to no avail.
Would anyone know how to help me fix this issue?
I'm very confused!
