Documents going to Files

Steps to reproduce
1. Go to Documents
2. Click Upload
3. Navigate, select file

Expected behaviour
I am new to Owncloud but I expected it to upload in Documents and become visible there. I don't know if I am using it incorrectly or if I am making an error.

Actual behaviour
Nothing becomes visible in Documents. Instead the file becomes visible in Files. When I look at the files on the server, the document ends up in /data/user/files. The only file in Documents is example.odt
