Display CPT taxonomies as an archive page

Hello Stack Exchange people,

I created a custom post type called “articles”.
I also created a taxonomy “city” for that specific post type.

I can create a custom post and set a city to it and it gives me the url I’m wishing to read this page.

https://www.url.com/blog/city/title_of_the_article/

The thing I wish to do is to create a city page that will act like the regular archive.php but just for the city of the custom post types.

For example, I created a CPT for articles with a city set to “Tunis” so my url is:

https://www.url.com/blog/tunis/my_article/

I would like this url:

https://www.url.com/blog/tunis/

to be the archive page for the article with the city set to Tunis.

I ran multiple tests but it didn’t work (404 error).

For info, I don’t have a archive-city.php page created.

Here is my code for CPT and the taxonomy.
(For now and considering the code I’m showing, the archive page is available at:
https://www.url.com/blog/articles/)

register_post_type( ‘article’,
array( ‘labels’ => array(
‘name’ => ‘Articles’,
‘singular_name’ => ‘Article’,
‘all_items’ => ‘All article’,
‘add_new’ => ‘Add article’,
‘add_new_item’ => ‘Add article’,
‘edit’ => ‘Edit article’,
‘edit_item’ => ‘Edit article’,
‘new_item’ => ‘New article’,
‘view_item’ => ‘View article’,
‘search_items’ => ‘Search article’,
‘not_found’ => ‘Nothing found in the Database.’,
‘not_found_in_trash’ => ‘Nothing found in Trash’,
‘parent_item_colon’ => ”
),

‘description’ => ‘This is the example custom post type’,
‘public’ => true,
‘publicly_queryable’ => true,
‘exclude_from_search’ => false,
‘show_ui’ => true,
‘query_var’ => true,
‘menu_position’ => 10,
‘menu_icon’ => ‘dashicons-welcome-write-blog’,
‘rewrite’ => array( ‘slug’ => ‘adresses’, ‘with_front’ => true ),
‘has_archive’ => ‘articles’,
‘capability_type’ => ‘post’,
‘hierarchical’ => false,
‘taxonomies’ => array( ‘category’ ),

‘supports’ => array( ‘title’, ‘editor’, ‘author’, ‘thumbnail’ )));

and

function resource_type() {
$labels = array(
‘name’ => _x( ‘city’, ‘Taxonomy General Name’, ‘snt’ ),
‘singular_name’ => _x( ‘city’, ‘Taxonomy Singular Name’, ‘snt’ ),
‘menu_name’ => __( ‘Add city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘all_items’ => __( ‘All city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘parent_item’ => __( ‘Parent city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘parent_item_colon’ => __( ‘Parent city:’, ‘snt’ ),
‘new_item_name’ => __( ‘New city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘add_new_item’ => __( ‘Add New city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘edit_item’ => __( ‘Edit city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘update_item’ => __( ‘Update city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘view_item’ => __( ‘View city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘separate_items_with_commas’ => __( ‘Separate items with commas’, ‘snt’ ),
‘add_or_remove_items’ => __( ‘Add or remove city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘choose_from_most_used’ => __( ‘Choose from the most used’, ‘snt’ ),
‘popular_items’ => __( ‘Popular city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘search_items’ => __( ‘Search city’, ‘snt’ ),
‘not_found’ => __( ‘Not Found’, ‘snt’ ),
‘no_terms’ => __( ‘No article’, ‘snt’ ),
‘items_list’ => __( ‘Items list’, ‘snt’ ),
‘items_list_navigation’ => __( ‘Items list navigation’, ‘snt’ ),
);
$args = array(
‘labels’ => $labels,
‘hierarchical’ => true,
‘public’ => true,
‘show_ui’ => true,
‘show_admin_column’ => true,
‘show_in_nav_menus’ => true,
‘show_tagcloud’ => true,
‘rewrite’ => array(‘slug’ => ‘city’)
);
register_taxonomy( ‘city’, array( ‘article’ ), $args );}
add_action( ‘init’, ‘resource_type’, 0 );

To get https://www.url.com/blog/city/ as the archive page, what am I missing?

Thanks
