New App - ReactJS and v5 CLI - missing www/index.html

Hi, so I have just set up a new app - using Reactjs and Ionic v5.0.1 CLI (, as I create the App and use one of the sample projects, it’s fine previewing on browser and on my physical Android device, but when I try and run ionic cordova run and try to emulate on an iOS simulator, I get Error: Start Page at 'www/index.html' was not found.

I’ve tried launching Xcode and adding the files to the project - including trying to add both the empty www and the public folder, but it still doesn’t run on iOS simulator, same error. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, I am also facing the same issue. can somebody throw a light why www folder is empty for ionic react project? and how to recover from that
