I was following the ASP.NET Core MVC tutorial from adding-model
but when I run the command
dotnet aspnet-codegenerator controller -name MoviesController -m Movie -dc MvcMovieContext --relativeFolderPath Controllers --useDefaultLayout --referenceScriptLibraries
it shows the following error in terminal:

Building project ...  
Finding the generator 'controller'...  
Running the generator 'controller'...  
Attempting to compile the application in memory.  
Attempting to figure out the EntityFramework metadata for the model and DbContext: 'Movie'  
A file matching the name MvcControllerWithContext.cshtml was not found within any of the folders:
