There are a few misunderstandings here.  A .war file is a type of zip
archive, which contains a web application.

Putting a file in a WEB-INF directory somewhere doesn't automatically
produce a web application.

I sent you the link, because it contains a series of references which
explain what a web application is: it also clearly defines the structure
of an application and how to assemble one.

It is precisely because you are a beginner that it's useful, because it
introduces concepts and gives you an example application to work with.

Maybe you could re-read that section of the site?
