Question Expansion tank problem?

I have a Renault Clio 1.4RT Automatic, 1995. Something seems to be wrong with the expansion tank, or really I am not sure. The coolant tank cannot be filled to the required level. Each time when the coolant level is higher than the lower pipe connected to the tank, there is leaking at the connection point with the upper pipe. Cannot understand why, can anybody help out? Thanks a lot.

Is the hose clamp tight? Is it the original hose? If so, it may have a pin hole leak. Replace it. Is the neck at the radiator leaking?

Thanks a lot, I will check

Thank you very much for your help, I will check later. The coolant level remains the same height as the lower pipe connection, by the way.
