How to properly create folder and files on /storage/emulated/0 using Cordova File Plugin?

I try to use Cordova File to create folder MyApp (if not exist) and files on /storage/emulated/0 (internal storage)

The code is like

 await this.file.checkDir(this.file.externalRootDirectory, "MyApp").then(
      async value => {
        if (!value) {
          await this.file.createDir(this.file.externalRootDirectory, "MyApp", true).catch(err => console.error('error in createDir', err));
        }
      },
      async err => {
        console.error("error in checkDir", err);
        await this.file.createDir(this.file.externalRootDirectory, "MyApp", true).catch(err => console.error('error in createDir', err));
      }
 );

However, the console just outputs

error in checkDir > FileError {code: 1, message: "NOT_FOUND_ERR"}
error in createDir > FileError {code: 12, message: "PATH_EXISTS_ERR"}

When I log the value of externalRootDirectory, the console shows

file:////storage/emulated/0/

How can I properly access this path and create folder?

Thank you.
