A person died in my relative circle. On the 2nd day Fatiha was held and I didn’t attend it. Did I commit any sin?

You did not sin rather you did a good job. The prevalent Fatiha is not proved and it is bida’h. It is mandatory to avoid participating in it. People should individually do isal-e-sawab for the deceased person by sadaqah, charity, tilawat and tasbihat etc.
