Unable to build ios app for simulator using xcodebuild

I am currently want to create a debug simulator build using xcodebuild command rather than xcode IDE.

however, I always see a "debug-iphoneos" folder is generated, which is for the real device. I expected the simulator output folder "Debug-iphonesimulator"

Can anyone take a look at my script and suggest why the script is not working for simulator?

xcodebuild -scheme "TestApp" -configuration "Debug" -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 6,OS=latest' -workspace TestApp.xcworkspace clean archive -archivePath build/TestApp PROVISIONING_PROFILE="$provisioningUUID" CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY="$codeSignIdentity"


now I can run successfully as below:

xcodebuild -arch i386 -sdk iphonesimulator9.3 -workspace "$app.xcworkspace" -scheme "$scheme" -configuration "Debug"
