How do I setup read and write for an already available Nextcloud Directory in home?

I also tried to create a new directory. But I get this every time.

Ubuntu 18.04

name:      nextcloud-client
summary:   Nextcloud Desktop Client
publisher: Nextcloud✓

as the text states, you don’t have permission to create files and folders in the location you specified. Check that the folder is within /home/$USER where $USER is the user you start nextcloud client as and that the filesystem permissions allow access by that user account.

Nextcloud client has the required plugs defined for home folder access so providing your home folder is not in a non-default location, and you are not trying to access a file or folder beginning with a dot (.), then the access is not being restricted by the snap environment.
