Installing Wordpress on Ubuntu (20.04) server without domain

Hey everyone! I am quite new to server configurations and have a pretty basic question, I think.

I just ordered a virtual server at IONOS for creating a special web project. For this project it is necessary to install wordpress on this server, but it is not possible to transfer the Domain to IONOS. This means I have to install Wordpress without having a Domain in Plesk Obsidian. This means I am not able to use the Wordpress Tools in Plesk

For this reason I have to install wordpress manually. To keep the server structured, I would like to install wordpress in a subfolder.

Unfortunately I am not able to access the subfolder via browser to start the installation process.

The root of the server currently contains 5 folders: .autoinstaller .cache .ssh parallels wordpress (created by me)

Is there any way to open this subfolder via the web browser to install Wordpress or is this not possible?

Thanks for your help!
