Need help with transmission problem

I have a 1995 BMW 525 automatic. When the engine is cold, the transmission shifts fine. After driving for about 10 minutes and the engine has warmed up, The car won't engage into first gear. This happens when stopped at a red light. It takes about 10 to 15 seconds when I finally get it to move. Once it moving, it can shift to 2nd, 3rd, etc.. fine. Stop at a red light again and the problem starts again. Do I need to replace the transmission or the problem can be fix some how? Any suggestion would be appreciated.

the first step is to always check the fluid level.

either read the owner's manual, a service manual or even the dipstick itself for the proper conditions to check the level accurately. (meaning, which gear to be in and the temp of the fluid). parked on a level ground also helps.
