When a file is created in sub folders of folder

We're trying to upload documents to SharePoint Online when a file is created in the Box Drive.  We have SharePoint library location and document metadata in the folder names in Box Drive. It's like four levels of folders in Box and in total 90 child folders for many different libraries. 

Document Path: Folder(2) -> Site Collection(10+) -> Sub Folder1(10+) -> Sub Folder2(20+) -> Document.

I tried in ms flow starting with Box on When a file is created (Properties Only). To get the created document I should choose the entire path until Sub Folder2. But it takes more than 90 flows for just one site collection. I choose the folder path Folder->Site Collection to get the files created in the subfolders but it didn't work.

Am I missing anything or should I create 90 flows using the absolute document path?
