I have developer angular app from WordPress rest API. I my WordPress baseURL and Angular app both are in same director (this is because WordPress and Angular URL are matched). But in this setup issue is, when I direct open URL i.e. /blog or /anyPAGE, then it send request to WordPress instead of angular(index.html) so is there a way to serve my app from index.html instead of index.php?


yes, why not name your app's page app.html it seems your hosting gives a priority to .php instead of .html This is controlled by Apache's DirectoryIndex setting.
