How to start an appium server in terminal and still use the terminal

I need to start an appium server and then continue using the terminal that the server was started from. The command to start the server is "appium --address --port ". This starts a server but now the terminal cannot be used. Is there a way to bypass this, allowing to have a server running while also still using that same terminal? I have attempted the && command as well to create a new terminal session right after starting the server but it turns out the first terminal session is required.

This has been solved by forcing it to run in the background by adding “&” to the end of it.
