PHP is a server side language, so if you want anything to be visible to DOM (i.e to your HTML), you will have to print it to DOM.This is achieved through echo

<div style="background-image: url('<?php echo $iconPath ?>')"></div>

Any variable value if needed to be printed, just echo it and it'll be visible to DOM.
