... maybe i have confusion :
on delete -> NO ACTION
on update -> NO ACTION

then i try to delete a banks record , and i have exception , and it is what i want
i can insert a customer record without a banks record connectedt and it is ok for me ,
the trouble is that if i try to change a previous inserted customer where i connected
a banks record , and i try to change the connection to null i have an exception .

thanks for answers

In you original example, the banks record cannot be deleted if a
customer is using it and one cannot be added or updated without a
bank record existing.

However you will have add the constraint 'not null' on IdBank in
customers to prevent a record being posted with a null value
