Postgres not using index in citext column

The following query is returning a SEQ Scan instead a Index.

select file_name from myschemadb.my_files where file_name = 'djsaidjasdjoasdjoaidad'

Engine

Postgres 11.5

My table:

CREATE TABLE myschemadb.my_files

    id int4 NOT NULL,
    file_name myschemadb.citext NOT NULL,
    status_id int4 NOT NULL,<br />
    file_key myschemadb.citext NOT NULL,
    is_fine bool NOT NULL DEFAULT true,
    create_date timestamptz NOT NULL DEFAULT now(),
    update_date timestamptz NULL,
    CONSTRAINT pk_my_files PRIMARY KEY (id)
);

The created index:

CREATE INDEX my_files_file_name_idx ON myschemadb.my_files USING btree (file_name);

I guess the problem is here:

"Filter": "((my_files.file_name)::text = 'djsaidjasdjoasdjoaidad'::text)",

This implicit conversion can be a problem.
But when i make a explicit conversion doesnt work too:

select file_name from myschemadb.file_history where file_name = 'djsaidjasdjoasdjoaidad'::myschemadb.citext

I see this link: Why does a comparison between CITEXT and TEXT fail?

but didn’t help me..
