Was this set at the lowest setting for starters? If your dog jumped like that it sounds like it may have been set higher.
There are not uncommon such reactions the firt time an e-collar is put on a dog. It is something absolutely unexpected for them and it is more the dog being startled than actually in pain. They may even yelp, like when you are seeing an horror movie or a friend give you a scare from behind.
