Help and Advice For My Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

Hi all,

Two weeks ago, I purchased a fiddle leaf fig tree at a local nursery. I didn't want to do anything drastic to it after the stress of moving it home, so I've left it in its original pot and placed the whole thing into an outer decorative pot. It's elevated within the decorative pot and the decorative pot also has one drain hole, so water is able to freely come out. My FLF sits next to a door with a window and there is a huge window (north facing) just 1.5 meters away as well. These windows do not get direct sun. I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I've only watered it once (one week ago) since I got it, but even before the watering, I had noticed some brown spots on both the old and new leaves. It seems to be getting worse though. There are also some holes and on a few leaves, huge chunks of the leaves are missing.

Some pictures:

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my FLF and what I can do to prevent this from getting any worse? Thank you!
