Ubiquiti virtual APs

I'm trying to set up virtual APs in AirOS 5.5.6. I put the config in the file /etc/persistent/rc.poststart and works fine.
But I can't add WPA key security.

See the config(this works):

XM.v5.5.6# cat /etc/persistent/rc.poststart
wlanconfig ath create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap

iwconfig ath1 essid "MyVirtualAP"

ifconfig ath1 up

And after change save and reboot:
XM.v5.5.6# cfgmtd -w -p /etc/
Found Active on[1] ...
Found Backup1 on[2] ...
Storing Active[2] ... [%100]
Active->Backup[1] ... [%100]

XM.v5.5.6# reboot

What i tried after "essid "MyVritualAP" was put "key "MyWPAKey123"" but doesn’t work.
Any idea how can i put WPA or WPA2 in virtual AP?
