Unless you missed some information on what you've exactly done, this is not the correct way to create a local repository. First you have to create the metadata for your local repository using the command createrepo (maybe you have to previously install it):
then you have to add a custom repository file in /etc/yum.repos.d/. For example name it RHEL-Local.repo and put something like:
name=RHEL-$releasever - Local Repository
Hope this helps!
