I have had this same problem after thorough checking it ended up being a bad steering box. after replacing the box it was fine

is it the right key for that car? cause if not then that is the problem... if it is the right key, then you might have to replace the key cylinder cause you may have something broken in it...

Typically, the steering is preloaded. This happens when car is turned off with some steering assist being applied (whether you know it or not).
Often you have to manhandle the wheel in one direction or the other while turning the key.
