You need to be aware that the method you are trying results in specifying
the space name, not the space reference, so instead of creating the space
reference "A.B" (i.e. "B", child of "A"), you are creating a reference to
"A\.B" (i.e. space called "A.B", at the top level).

You`re probably looking for the Nested Spaces specific signature of the
createDocumentReference method:

  public DocumentReference createDocumentReference(String wiki,
List<String> spaces, String page, String hint) [1]

  e.g.: $services.model.createDocumentReference('', ['XApp', 'Data'],

Another option is the more generic approach, using the resolveDocument

  public DocumentReference resolveDocument(String stringRepresentation,
Object... parameters) [2]

  e.g.: $services.model.resolveDocument('XApp.Data.WebHome')

Hope this helps,
