Confluence is a wiki, not a document store like Google Drive.  As such, "folders" make no sense to it.  The focus is on pages, for which you can create a "tree", but each page simply holds attachments, there's no real use for attachment directories under pges.

Thanks for reply, but yet my problem is not solved.

I am in legal services industry (primarily court litigations) where in along with collaboration and documentation,  sometimes we required the data to be tagged to its specific type and such documents are not few but many , therefore we require folders to keep them segregated on particular page and for comfortable look we need the folders to be pasted on the same page itself. How we can achieve that objective?

It's the same answer. 

You have moved from some (unamed) system to a Wiki.  Wikis are not document management systems, they're intended to be living systems, not archives of stuff people will never read again.

If you want a "folder" structure, that's fine, it's a good way to think, but to do it in a wiki, you need to think upwards.  Your page structure is your "folder" tree, not some arbitrary grouping of dead docs under each page.

In fact, the best thing you could do is import your documents properly, so that each document becomes an active and useful page within a tree (folders).

In the tree menu on the left Just drag one page on top of another page and it becomes a "sub-page".

Per @Charlie.Coverdale's reply on the accepted answer:

Thanks for not gate-keeping like the other guy.

He just expanded on

"The focus is on pages, for which you can create a "tree", but each page simply holds attachments" and "Your page structure is your "folder" tree"
