Posting a .html file to existing conflunce page via REST API

I want to post .html file to confluence page that I have created earlier via REST API. I have tried this using this PUT command with the following URL:

PUT https://<confluence page>/rest/api/content/<pageID>?

How can I post .html file to confluence page? Which API endpoint should I use?

If you instead mean to upload the HTML file as an attachment you should use the attachment REST API.
