If the new file path contains a folder structure, that folder structure must exist, i.e. it won’t be created automatically.

If the new file path is the same as the original one, nothing happens.

If the new file path already exists, an error is returned. If the new file path specifies a destination folder that does not exist, an error is returned.

Please note that to move the note to a new folder, you’ll need to specify the full destination path, i.e. folder and file name.
