Try to run:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

Then open a new tag on your browser and go to localhost:8000

This works! Although i thought we were able to use React locally without a server, but guess i'm wrong.

If you're using VSC you can also install the Live Server extension to fire up your app in a live server with one click.
