first of all it is the titanic and maybe it is the first biggest ship ever made at that time so basically there must be the weakness of it and the event was happened at night so it is totally dark since they only use man to watch out the situation so they didn't realise that there is iceberg relies ahead so accident happened

I've seen and read a lot of stuff on the Titanic... From what I've read it was a combination of things. Had the ship simply kept going ahead full and turned the rudder all the way over they would have had minimal damage or missed the iceberg altogether. There were also flaws in the metal used which made it more brittle and I believe they determined that they used the wrong rivets on the hull.
