adb push error: remote couldn't create file: Operation not permitted

When I tried to adb push file to Google Pixel 3 XL running Android 12. The following error occurred:

$ adb push story-2022-01-01T19:02:47+08:00-1641034967.mp4 /sdcard/DCIM/Camera/
adb: error: failed to copy 'story-2022-01-01T19:02:47+08:00-1641034967.mp4' to '/sdcard/DCIM/Camera/story-2022-01-01T19:02:47+08:00-1641034967.mp4': remote couldn't create file: Operation not permitted

I tried to Google search the error message but the posts I found told me to re-mount or root the phone, which did not work for me.

Before this I have successfully adb pushed files to the phone so the probably the problem is not about mount or root. Then I tried to search illegal character android file name and found that the problem was the : character is not allowed in the file name on Android 12. After replacing the : with allowed character, I successfully pushed the file to the phone.
