Hi there and welcome

By default it adds the contacts to the iPhones memory, not the Sim.

To add contacts, Tap Contacts, then tap the + button in the top-right corner.

Then add the contact in the window that shows.

To ensure your contacts are backed up online in the event you lose the phone, go to settings, iCloud and make sure contacts is tuned on.

Let me know please how you go with this

Thank you
