Unfortunately, the Instagram API does not support stories at the moment.
Instagram API only supports single and multi-photo posts (carousels), and videos:

Limitations:

Photos can be of any format, but need to have a minimum resolution of 320x320 pixels. They will be automatically cropped if they're not within the 1.91:1 and 4:5 ratios.

Videos can only be between 3 and 60 seconds long, have a maximum width of 1920 pixels, and have a size no bigger than 100 MB.

Stories are not supported by Instagram's API.
We do have a thread going on here, where you can subscribe to for updates so that you get notified once that is supported by the API. We will also be able to semi-automate this with a notification system that will be implemented once the mobile apps are out, which are planned for the end of this year..

Future work-arounds:

We are developing a work-around currently, which will make it possible for users to post stories to Instagram with a notification system. It is a semi-automation that will remind users on their phone once the post is ready, so they can publish it with one click.

That will be implemented once the mobile apps are out, which are planned for Q3 this year. You can subscribe for updates on that here.

Lastly, feel free to take a look at what all the supported post types are here
