Seems like you haven't set the virtual path correctly. Check your IIS web app manage settings.

Virtual path:

Parameters for IIS Application configuration:

Enter the virtual path in IIS relative to the parent website. The parent website must already exist. Example: to create an application named Site/Application enter /Application.

Parameters for IIS Virtual Directory configuration

Enter the virtual path in IIS relative to the parent website. The parent website and application must already exist. Example: to create a virtual directory named Site/Application/VDir enter/Application/Vdir.

For more information check Deploy: IIS Web App Manage
