Link nextcloud files save directory to my shared folder on my server

I have a local server for an office that runs Linux and has a main data folder shared for Windows users through Samba. I discovered nextcloud and realized that it would be a great option for my server. When I install nextcloud, a different location is created where the files saved in nextcloud are stored. The question is: how do I point the nextcloud storage to that shared folder of mine in samba? So that when modifying a file on the web it is also edited in my samba folder. Maybe the desktop client is an alternative, but I have no idea how to do that! Thank you very much in advance!

Please use search this topic was discussed often in the past. good search terms are “external storage” and “webdav”.
