Are you sure you have the right wget?  It works for me:

root@debian:~# cat /etc/debian_version
root@debian:~# apt-cache policy wget
  Installed: 1.18-5+deb9u3
  Candidate: 1.18-5+deb9u3
  Version table:
 *** 1.18-5+deb9u3 500
        500 http://security.debian.org stretch/updates/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
root@debian:~# wget -q -O netinst.iso https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-cd/debian-10.7.0-amd64-netinst.iso
root@debian:~# ls
