How to run a command in background in Windows GitHub Action

I would like to serve local files through a web-server and execute some tests inside GitHub Action that runs Windows, but I cannot make it run server in the background

Here’s my setup:

name: CI Windows

on:
  push:
    branches:
    - '*'

jobs:
  build:
    runs-on: windows-2019

    steps:
    - uses: actions/checkout@v1

    - uses: actions/setup-python@v2
      with:
        python-version: '3.x'

    - name: Test local api
      run: |
        cmd /c "START /b run-local-api-server.bat"
        curl -X GET "http://localhost:9195/README.md"

And run-local-api-server.bat script:

@echo off

python3 -m http.server 9195

The error I get is curl: (7) Failed to connect to localhost port 9195: Connection refused.
