You really can't expect useful help if you are going to pose questions
that abstract. You have removed details that count, and made assumptions
that don't necessarily hold (e.g., what does "act as one subquery" mean?)
Probably the most likely bet, on this limited information, is that there
are enough base tables hidden inside your query that you're running into
join_collapse_limit and/or from_collapse_limit, resulting in the planner
failing to investigate the best available plan in one case. Raising those
limits would help, if so. But it could easily be something else.
There's some suggestions here about how to ask useful questions:
