Hot Module Replacement ‘[HMR] Waiting for update signal from WDS…’ forever, how to enable Hot Module Replacement or send signal from Webpack Dev Server?

I want Hot Module Replacement be enabled.
Therefore, I set hot: true in webpack.config.js.

I stuck at

[HMR] Waiting for update signal from WDS…

I expected to see

[HMR] Waiting for update signal from WDS…
[WDS] Hot Module Replacement enabled.

I tried webpack serve --hot --inline command, but I got nothing…

webpack.config.js

// Paths
const path = require('path');
const srcPath = path.join(__dirname, 'src');
const distPath = path.join(__dirname, 'dist');
const publicPath = path.join(__dirname, 'public');

// Plugins...

// Modules
module.exports = {
  mode: 'development',
  entry: path.join(srcPath, 'index.tsx'),
  output: {
    path: distPath,
    filename: 'bundle.js',
  },
  module: {
    rules: [
      // TypeScript
      {
        test: /.(j|t)sx?$/,
        exclude: /node_modules/,
        use: ['babel-loader']
      },
  },
  // resolves...
  devServer: {
    contentBase: distPath,
    historyApiFallback: true,
    hot: true,
    inline: true,
    writeToDisk: true
  },
  // plugins...

.babelrc

// .babelrc
{
    "presets": [
        "@babel/preset-env", 
        "@babel/preset-react",
        "@babel/preset-typescript"
    ],
    "plugins": [
        "react-hot-loader/babel"
    ]
}

App.tsx
I use ‘react-hot-loader’.

import { hot } from 'react-hot-loader/root';

// some codes

export default hot(App);

if I change code ‘webpack-dev-server’ shows

i 「wdm」: Compiling…
./src/App.tsx 1.62 KiB [built] [code generated]
i 「wdm」: Compiled successfully.
