Dear Dr. Tran Thank you very much for clearing my doubt.
I have one more question about selecting the volume (structure) for the final calculation. In the volume optimization, normally, we get a different volume than the original volume for the minimum energy from E Vs V plot. Then, which structure file we should use for the rest of the calculation ( for U + SO)? Do we have structure data for minimum energy written in a file, if so what is that? ( For my case I get the minimum E in between -3 and 0 volume changes. I believe I need to use the structure corresponds to that volume for next steps.) Thank you for your valuable advises.

It's more a question of choosing the volume for the final calculation U+SOC. One may choose to do no geometry optimization and just use the experimental geometry. If no experimental geometry is available, then you need to calculate it, preferably (but not necessarily ) with the same method used for the final calculation of the electronic structure. Note that with WIEN2k it is not possible to optimize the position of atoms with SOC since the forces are wrong with SOC. F.
