Directory structure

In the page “” there are the following lines:

Create directory structure
To make the basic structure in the directory ~/example_ament_ws:
mkdir ~/ros2_ws
mkdir ~/ros2_ws/src
cd ~/ros2_ws

I don’t understand.
Should I make: “~/example_ament_ws/ros2_ws” and “~/example_ament_ws/ros2_ws/src”?
or, if I make: “~/ros2_ws” and “~/ros2_ws/src” what is the porpose of “~/example_ament_ws”?
Thanks in advance.
