Why is the price displayed in the crypto detail pages different from the final buy and sell prices on the order page?

The price you see on the cryptocurrency detail page is the mark price. This value is between the bid and ask prices. When you place a market order to buy a coin, it can be executed at the ask price, which is higher than the mark price.On the other hand, when you place a market order to sell a coin, it can be executed at the bid price, which is lower than the mark price.
