There is no homepage URL

I have just started learning/working with Drupal and I am trying to build a theme for a website (something that has nothing to do with a blog other than the fact that the content is dynamically generated).

I have just installed Drupal 8.4 with the Minimal profile and created the bare structure of my theme. However, when I go to visit http://mysite I get redirected to http://mysite/users/1.

I want to create a frontpage containing a large search bar and the thumbnails of some content (if that matters in any way). I created a page--front.html.twig but I still can't get rid of the redirect from / to /users/1.

Could you please give me some advice regarding this redirect and the more general idea of implementing a custom landing page?

For redirection, You need to check if anything is written in .htaccess. By default after login if drupal is redirecting you to user/{uid} page and you want it on front page, then you can write below code in your custom module:

function hook_user_login($account) {
  // We want to redirect user on login.
  $response = new RedirectResponse("<front>");

For Custom design of Front page, you are going in write direction. You can write the twig code in page--front.html.twig.
