Just to mention here for the others that could face the same problem, this turned out to be the expected behavior when the IsManaged property of the OrderDetails collection is disabled. Enabling this property should fix the problem, even the OrderId property of the new order detail does not need to be set explicitly.
More information about the associations behavior can be found here
