When you duplicate a page this page is not published and not visible in the navigation controls bound to SiteMapDataSource. First you click "duplicate page", then you have to save the page and you are forced to go through workflow steps. I attached a short video from our demo website.
Most probably you use some custom navigation which does not handle PageWorkflow
