The only problem with putting the first joist so close to the wall is how to close off the roof  with a cambered joist and a level wall (gravel stop condition). You would not have this problem with a parapet. I prefer to have the joist several feet away and have an angle bolted to the wall or an embedded plate in the bond beam that the deck gets welded to.
