[TYPO3] FE login with simulatebe and a custom auth service

I have made a custom auth service which creates FE users based on an
external database. The first time someone logs in it will create a FE
user, BE user and several other things which aren't important for my
problem. The FE user is linked to the BE user for the simulatebe
extension. Each time the user logs in after that first time it only
checks if the user exists in the external database and updates some data
(like name and address).

The problem I have is when the user logs in for the first time it is not
logged in as a BE user. It seems simulatebe is triggered before the
custom auth service. Logins after the first one don't have this problem
since the FE user and BE user already exist and are linked. Is there
anyone who has run into similar problems? And is there a way to fix it?
