Connecting a local host to ESXI 8

Hello. I am not very familiar with ESXI and probably the answer to this question is very easy. My overall goal is to connect a PC to an ESXI network. I have prepared the following image for further explanation:

I have 2 VMs connected to vSwitch0. The CLIENT system is connected to vmnic1 and the network is done. 

Now I want to add the PC to this network. Now I want to add the PC to this network. I connected PC to vmnic2. I defined a second uplink for vSwitch0. After this, VMs and PCs are placed in the same network, but the CLIENT's connection with the network is disconnected. What should I do to add the PC to the network?

You can't do this that way. The vSwitch will not forward traffic between vmnics.
Connect the vmnics as well as the CLIENT, and the PC to a physical switch.
