Did you ever heard of A/B slots? The Moto G6+ uses A/B slots and does not have a partition /recovery. Of course there is a recovery but it 's merged in the boot.img. So the boot.img is able to boot into recovery and also into system.

Your TWRP image is recovery only and isn't able to boot into system!

What will happen when flashing TWRP to partition /boot?
In that case your boot.img = twrp.img and will only boot into recovery.

How to install TWRP permanently on your device?
First of all you should have a look at https://twrp.me/motorola/motorolamotog6plus.html
TWRP provides an installation guide for every device and it´s recommended to follow these steps.

Here´s a more detailed guide:

1. In your case you have to restore the boot.img since it got overwritten by flashing your twrp.img to /boot.
If available use a backup of /boot. Otherwise flash the stock boot.img from your current running firmware version. Firmware builds can be found here:

(take care of your software channel, i.e. RETUS)

*** Be aware that by flashing your stock boot.img Magisk will be deinstalled from ***
your device and as a result of this you will LOOSE ROOT ACCESS!!

2. Run
fastboot boot <TWRP.IMG>

3. On TWRP main screen go to Advanced => Install Recovery Ramdisk and pick the twrp.img:

Sure, install the Magisk App and on the mainscreen:
Install > Select and Patch a File > choose your boot.img > Let's go (see screenshots attached).

In your download folder you'll find the »magisk_patched-25200_xxxxx.img« which can be flashed by
Code:
fastboot flash boot magisk_patched-25200_xxxxx.img

Another way: Instead of installing TWRP permanently you can also boot TWRP:
Code:
fastboot boot TWRP_IMAGE
This command loads TWRP to your RAM from where it boots only once.

    i tryed to boot twrp but it didnt work
    Uninstall Minimal ADB and Fastboot, check if you have unlocked the bootloader and use >Google platform-tools<.

    In addition to the comment "does not work", include the results of your commands.
    Nobody but you can see them.
