Unable to read available file after downloading

After downloading a file using `wget`, I'm attempting to read it by spark.read.json.

I am getting error:
 
PATH_NOT_FOUND - Path does not exist: dbfs:/tmp/data.json. SQLSTATE: 42K03
File <command-3327713714752929>, line 2
 
I have checked the file do exist. I attempted to copy the file to DBFS, but encountered difficulties.
Attaching relevant screenshots here.  

Could someone please help me identify any errors or issues in my approach?

Thank you.
