Creating a folder for new list item, and create a link to the folder.

Hi! 
reading some other example, I still can't figure it out. So maybe you can assist.

There is a list: Employees

Each new to be created employee folder within the library Staff must have a personal name: Title_Surname_Name

1. I add a title, surname and name in Employees;

2. The flow starts with creating a folder for that staff member;

3. The list item gets a link nice icon or short link in the hyperlink column: Employeefolder. 

 

Tried to work this out but somehow it doesn't work.
I also tried this: How To Update Hyperlink Fields With URL And Description Using Microsoft Flow 
but get the message: The expression "web/lists/GetByTitle(‘Employees’)/items(35)" is not valid.
I do think something is wrong with the ID or so.


I tried two options: 

1.

and 2.

It's solved for now. It went wrong with the single and double quotes signs and the proper connection with the ID field.

Thanks! This is really magic to me. I thought to just follow what Power Automate facilitates without knowing code. This above my understanding of scripts.
