I have a website where I built a sub-folder structure on my links, like this: /category/city/postname

Does it matter if /category/city doesn't have a page, even if there is no link to it on the entire website?

If I build a page for /category/city now, could this page climb higher than /category/city/postname in search results, since first page index after second page already have been indexed by search engine?

To clarify we want combination of two words "category" and "city" in search results bring up /category/city before /category/city/postname even if /category/city is indexed after /category/city/postname over time
