I created a new folder in the terminal and it does not show in the search engine

I ran into this problem in my new Mac Book Pro. I created a folder using iterm and I have some content (I cloned a git repository). When I go to the search engine I do not see it.

Maybe it is not in the correct folder … but I tried to create the folder in the search engine and I get the error "the folder already exists" but I still do not see it.

I am using mojave 10.14.1
