Error when trying to create DB: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server

I am trying to write application in ASP.NET, already created Models, Context and want to create DB with EF Code-First approach, but it does not work.

Additionally, folder App_Data is empty. I have installed SQL Server 2017 Express.

I tried every possible solution I could find, still, nothing worked.

Connection string:

<connectionStrings>
    <add name="DefaultConnection" 
         connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\MSSQLLocalDB;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\aspnet-BM-20171207072135.mdf;Initial Catalog=aspnet-BM-20171207072135;Integrated Security=True" 
         providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
</connectionStrings>

However, I get this error:

PM> update-database 

> Specify the '-Verbose' flag to view the SQL
> statements being applied to the target database

Make sure your sql server is up and running. Look from windows services (services.msc). Or to make sure, try to connect first manually using VS DB connection or SSMS.

Try to check this this (below) from your sql service properties too.
