Can section name differ from content directory name?

I want to make section with a different name from content directory name.
content : /content/post/…
section : /layouts/section/archives.html

If I make an emtpy markdown at /content/archives/ and deal with .Site.Pages not .Data.Pages at archives.html,
It seems work and shows what I wanted.

But I don’t want dummy files. Is there any way to solve this?

In posts’ front matter change the type using type: archives. This will override the type based on location in the content directory. Here’s how I made my archive page.

I mean, I don’t want to make a “/content/archives/”.
Changing type doesn’t work if not dummy md file exists.

Create a content file /content/post/ with a front-matter field of type = archives.
