Adding new Wordpress site to existing hosting package - how to put live?


I have  a very old web hosting account and it uses a static HTML website. I have FTP access. 

Through the BT web interface I've added an application - Wordpress. 

If I click on "edit site" it takes me to a URL that seems to be a preview URL / isn't on the "live" site, eg the URL looks like: 

How can I configure it so that the site will exist at the correct URL, when it's ready to be published?

I'd like the new Wordpress site to replace the current, existing site. 

I installed it in the root directory when setting it up, in case this makes any difference.

I'm wondering if I need to go to the MySQL database and change some settings there?

Thanks for any help.
