because n =1 points out first fringe from the centre but zero tells us about the absolute centre.

Dear student 
n = 0 points out the absolute centre . 
n= 1 points out the first fringe from centre . 
Usually we use the formula when n starts from 0 is: 
((2n+1)/2) * Lambda 
Hope this helps 
Good Luck
