NullPointerException when adding HTML to a cell

I’m having a NullPointerException when I do the following:

String html = "<font color=\"#FF0000\"><u><b>Segue uma sequencia de imagens:</b></u></font><br/>GIF<br/>          <br/>JPG<br/>     <br/>PNG<br/>                    <br/>JPEG<br/>       <br/>&nbsp;<br/>Todas as imagens em minha posso foram <u><b>carregadas</b></u>!!!! <b><u>Excepto as seguinte</u></b>:<br/>         <br/>&nbsp; !!.PNG|thumbnail!<br/>";
        Workbook wb = new Workbook();
        Worksheet sheet = wb.getWorksheets().get(0);
        Cell cell = sheet.getCells().get(0, 0);
        Style style = cell.getStyle();
        sheet.autoFitColumn(0);"C:\\Users\\Hugo Freixo\\Desktop\\tests\\teste.xlsx");

The exception happens on cell.setHtmlString(html);. I’m using Aspose Cells 18.3 Java.

Kind regards,
