LEMP DNS PHP

Hello,
i need to create 2 subdomains along with my site in one droplet.

ex: mysite.com ( simple html based website)
site2.mysite.com ( codeigniter framwork based app)
site3.mysite.com (wordpress)

so should i create separate virtual host for each subdomains or
should i create folders and point those folders using redirect rules in main virtual host file. also is it possible to accomplish my above requirement this way?

please suggest me which method should i chose and why?
