This means that, of the first week, I can only restore file present in
the incremental backup.
In other words I do not have a cicle of 2 weeks but 1.

When your first week's full backup gets overwritten, what are those incremental backups "incremental to"?  What's you're describing sounds like what I expect fulls and incrementals to be.  When you overwrite the full, you've essentially orphaned the incrementals that were created based on that full backup.
