setting up wifi-hotspot using NetworkMangaer

I'm trying to establish a WiFi hotspot in my computer using NetworkManger.
I've set up a WiFi connection with the following configs:

[connection]
id=Wi-Fi connection 2
uuid=<uuid>
type=wifi
interface-name=wlp3s0

[wifi]
mac-address=<mac-address_of_wlp3s0>
mode=ap
ssid=arch_linux

[wifi-security]
group=ccmp;
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
pairwise=ccmp;
proto=rsn;
psk=1234

[ipv4]
method=shared

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
method=shared

[proxy]

But i cannot seem to access this through my phone. The SSID does not show up on my phone. Is there something i'm doing wrong here. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

Re: setting up wifi-hotspot using NetworkMangaer

First, it might be helpful if you provided WiFi hardware info and info about the phone you are using. Second, consider changing the title of your post to remedy the misspelling of NetworkManager so that others can find your post if they are searching for the same or similar issue.
