Although you can easily create a new plan on your SharePoint Online Modern Team Site, it will NOT be listed in the Site content to be able to manage its settings and delete it. Instead, you should open the Planner Hub to can find your plan and manage it.

The newly created Plan is stored in the Planner Hub, not in the Site contents of the current SharePoint site.
