I'm using the luma demo for practicing.
I want to create and add a new block in my homepage like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <body>
        <referenceContainer name="page.wrapper">
            <block name="myblock"/>
        </referenceContainer>
    </body>
</page>

It worked but I want to change this block's order before the tag "main" which class name is "page-main".

I've tried this code :

<referenceContainer name="page.wrapper" before="main"> or
<referenceContainer name="page.wrapper" before="page.main"> or
<referenceContainer name="page.wrapper" before="page-main">

None of this works. Even I put a move tag like this:

<move element="myblock" destination="page.wrapper" before="main" /> or
<move element="myblock" destination="page.wrapper" before="page.main" /> or
<move element="myblock" destination="page.wrapper" before="page-main" />

How can I put my block before that?

You can try with below code

<referenceContainer name="someuniquename" before="main.content">

Use some unique name.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <body>
        <referenceContainer name="someuniquename" before="main.content">
            <block name="myblock"/>
        </referenceContainer>
    </body>
</page>

Make sure, you have proper block and template insted of <block name="myblock"/>. Then only you can identify wheter your block and template is at the right place.
