Redirect with Angular 8 not working


I have an Angular SPA that I would like to deploy with Netlify. My site goes live like a charm but when I hit refresh on any page it redirects to Page Not Found. I have read the documentation where it claimed I should use redirects since I use Angular Routing in my app.

So I have created a _redirects file in my src folder with /* /index.html 200 in it that should navigate all route to the index file so the Angular Router could handle the rest, and I added "src/_redirects" to my angular.json/assets array.

Thank you in advance!
