Create a folder with the Create file option in File System does not work



I want to create a folder with the File system Create file step in Power Automate, but I get the error that it can't find the path. I have the idea that this is because of the last forward slash, that has to a backwards slash. 


Is there a solution for this? I filled the step like this




Thanks in advance!

Same issue troubleshooting guidence could be for your reference:
