The Non-Aggression Pact was signed because both thought they’d get the better end of the deal, it didn’t work out like Hitler and Stalin thought it would.

Hitler expected the Non-Aggression Pact would make Britain and France back off on their threats to go to war if Germany invaded Poland.

Stalin, expected the war to be in the West, and to be long and disastrous for Britain, France and Germany, which would allow the Soviet Union to come from the East and take all of Europe with the other armies depleted. Stalin didn’t count on France falling so soon, and ultimately the US getting involved in the war.
