External Links bring to local host

I am trying to add a link to my main shiny page but it is always opened with 127 . 0 . 0 . 1 before:
for example, when I add a link such as something dot com it opens 127 . 0 . 0 . 1 /LINK TO USE

here my code:

ui <- shiny::fluidPage(
            icon = shiny::icon("home"), 
                        "<!-- Footer -->
                        <footer class='page-footer font-large indigo'>
                        <div class='footer-copyright text-center py-3'>
                        short description Link to methyl.O repo: <a href='LINK TO USE'> LINK TO USE</a> </a>
                        <!-- Footer -->"

server <- function(input=input, server=server,  output = output) {}

shiny::shinyApp(server=server, ui=ui)
