(It's likely a dumb question as I'm new to emacs buffer saving commands.)

After creating and editing a new buffer (with a temp name "untitled"), I would like to save it to a new file (not overwriting existing file) by a single command.

I tried to call save-buffer and write-file, both triggered helm-mode-basic-save-buffer (as i installed helm). But after typing the new file name, it returned Lisp error: (cl-assertion-failed (sel "Trying to exit with no candidates"))

I found that I can do it using 2 commands (rename-buffer and then write-file), but is there an easier way to do it by just a single command?
