I’ve created a website (html, css, etc) with 5-6 pages in it, lets say on example.com

Now I have to add many additional pages, and I’m not sure if is better to use WordPress or add all of these pages as pure HTML.

If I will use WordPress, I will install it on a subdirectory like example.com/page.

WordPress with “permalink” can be useful, but in this case I should set a redirect from the wordpress homepage to my html homepage. For example:

When someone go on **example.com/page** (wordpress home) 
will be redirected to **example.com** (html homepage)
Instead, if someone go on **example.com/page/my-page**
should see the wordpress page normally.

Its that possibile? Which is the best solution for SEO (html static pages, or wordpress with redirect to homepage, separate sitemap, etc)?
