Security features and MAC address table on access switch

Topology: PC <===>Access Switch (C2960)<===> Core Switch C4510 <===> DHCP Server (MS)

Security function on access switch: ip dhcp snooping, no ip dhcp snooping information option, ip arp inspection validate src-mac dst-mac ip allow zeros, ip arp inspection log-buffer entries 1024 , ip arp inspection log-buffer logs 1024 interval 10.

Config port:

switchport access vlan 100
switchport mode access
switchport block multicast
switchport block unicast
switchport voice vlan 101
switchport port-security
switchport port-security violation restrict
switchport port-security mac-address sticky
switchport port-security mac-address sticky <MAC> vlan access
ip arp inspection limit rate 100
storm-control broadcast level pps 5k
storm-control multicast level pps 5k
storm-control unicast level pps 20k
storm-control action trap
spanning-tree portfast
spanning-tree bpduguard enable
ip verify source port-security
ip dhcp snooping limit rate 15

Problem: On the port, the port-security function remembered one PC address. Available for remembering another. A second PC is connected to the access level switch. The port-security function does not see it, it does not appear in the table of mac addresses. There are no errors in the switch logs, the status port  is up, the line is up. However, on the DHCP server, it can be seen that the server issues the IP. In this case, the MAC address is needed and the IPs appear on the core switch, but do not appear in the MAC addresses tables on the switch to which the new PC is connected. The PCs were rebooted, waiting for the timeout of the ARP and CAM tables. It only helps to completely disable all the security features on the port. Why does the desired MAC stored on the core switch, but does not appear on the access switch? A problem appears on many access switches when connecting new equipment instead of old or in addition to old. Thank you for your help.
