Suppose a scene has an existing node with existing relations found upon expanding. When I search a new node, the nodes already present on the scene do not automatically link up with the new node. How to do this?
If this is not possible, any other way around this?
Hmm, that's odd, they should on expansion, do you have a screen-recording of an example?
On search/search-phrase probably not but that's a good feature request

What you could do is add a saved scene action that also takes the existing nodes and links the new node to them.
MATCH (n:Node) WHERE ... MATCH path = (n)--(m) WHERE id(m) IN $nodes RETURN path
