I use route command to add new route in my routing table. But it my new root is not added. Also it doesn't show any error for my command. Here is the console

#route add ::/0 via fe::2
route: resolving fe::2

So when I use route -A inet6, I can't see the newly added route.

I found the answer. The correct syntax to add a route is

#ip -6 route add <destination> dev <device> via <gateway>
