The first time that the windmill collapses can be found in Chapter 6.  In that chapter, the reason for the collapse is that the animals have built the windmill with walls that were too thin to hold its weight up.  This made it collapse in the storm.  Since that is pretty much his fault, Napoleon lies and says that Snowball has sabotaged the windmill.

Overall, the windmill has to be built three times.  This was the first time.  After they rebuilt it, there was the Battle of the Windmill where the people destroyed it.  The animals rebuilt it after that and that time it did not get destroyed.
