(NEWB QUESTION) Framework for loading HTML files

LEMP Deployment Ubuntu 16.04

I have set-up a droplet with Ubuntu LEMP framework and connected it via SSH to filezilla. The server and the connection are up and working fine, all security protocols are in place.
Rather than relying on Wordpress for CMS, I want to build out my pages in Adobe Muse and upload to my server.

My questions is, in filezilla, where do I upload my files to show on my site? Or do I need to create a directory through filezilla?

The droplet is showing a bunch of different folders, I am not sure where to upload my html files.

Thanks!

Hi,
With a LEMP server you should have a html folder located in /var/www
So from the root of your server navigate to /var/www/html and you'll see the nginx index.html file, resposible for the NGINX default page.
Without going in to virtual servers, every valid html / php file, should be served if placed in this folder.
