In your code you refer to an element with id = datatable, but in html you do not have such an element. There is only an element with a datatable class.

Ah I'm lost :D Thank you for this. But now I've the next problem.

That's actually a lot of data. In this situation, you should consider loading data asynchronously. Similarly, with search, it should then be handled asynchronously. Unfortunately, datatable does not have a built-in option that will enable this.
