An image is helpful, and some may follow that link, but it's also useful
to include example Org content and a set of steps to reproduce the
behavior you're describing.  Based on that link, something like

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* A
** B
some text
** C
target search
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

And then, with all content folded, 'C-s target'.

With the default settings in Org 9, the result is

    * A
    ** B...
    ** C
    target search

I believe you want the visibility to be like this:

    * A...
    ** C
    target search

You can customize this behavior through org-show-context-detail.  It
sounds like you'd prefer `minimal':

    (setf (alist-get 'isearch org-show-context-detail)
