FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified:

import os

def rename(directory):
for name in os.listdir(directory):

path = input("Enter the file path")

I want to rename every file in a certain directory so that it adds a 0 to the beginning of the file name, however when I try to run the code it comes up with this error:
