I really don't understand why people want to use a different display server which is not even fully functional. What's the point in using x11-wm/sway when he needs x11/xorg to function ar at least he needs X window to run apps. What's wrong with using x11-wm/i3(-gaps)?

Keep telling yourself that. To run apps on Wayland you need XWayland which is a X Server that runs under Wayland, basically you are using a X Server to run apps. So whats the point of using Wayland when you are forced to have X server to run apps?

but I didn't find any xorg process there
So basically you are gone install x11-wm/sway just to look at it or are you plan to run some apps on that machine, like a web browser, a terminal emulator, etc.? All those apps require a X server underneath Wayland to run.
By the way did you debug swaywm?
Code:
sway -d 2> sway.log
