I build a lot of decks,deck covers and pergolas. I would make sure your post are in the ground at least 30” or more depending on the height of the pergola ,with a concrete pad under the post before you poor concrete around them. If you don’t want to disturb your deck just put the post out side of the deck.the rest of the details will depend on your design. What ever you do don’t just connect your post to the top of the deck.
