Bug Unity does not recognize the "Application.dataPath" as a project location and the directory is fine

    I just wanted to script-create assets, so I figured I should use "AssetDatabase.CreateAsset(example, path);" but I got the error "Couldn't create asset file! (lots of error code)".
    But now for some reason the error has changed, until then I had only changed the code that I show below:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEngine;
    2. using System.IO;
    3. using UnityEditor;
    5. public class MusicasFinderAndAjuster : MonoBehaviour
    6. {
    7.     string BasePath;
    8.     private void Start()
    9.     {
    10.     }
    11.     private void Update()
    12.     {
    13.         if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.Alpha3))
    14.         {
    15.             print(AssetDatabase.IsValidFolder(Application.dataPath));
    16.             print(AssetDatabase.IsValidFolder(Application.dataPath+"/Assets"));
    17.             scriptableExemple example = ScriptableObject.CreateInstance<scriptableExemple>();
    18.             // path has to start at "Assets"
    19.             string path = System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() + "/a.asset";
    20.             //path.Remove()
    21.             Debug.LogWarning(path);
    22.             GUIUtility.systemCopyBuffer = System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory();
    23.             AssetDatabase.CreateAsset(example, path);
    24.         }
    25.     }
    26. }

    But now unity simply tells me that the "Application.dataPath" path is not a valid path for this function, or something like that.
    I searched a lot and I was led to understand that maybe the project is not recognizing the place where it is and I should tinker with the "Version Controler" or "External Tools", but it doesn't solve anything and I can't actually do anything.
    Here are some photos of errors and other things: upload_2023-2-8_23-41-38.png upload_2023-2-8_23-42-7.png
