Where does this go & how do I fit it in?

Hi, I have my 6s torn down to (hopefully) revive it, after falling asleep in the tub with the phone. Anyway, this little kind of an s shaped piece somehow fits in on the right side of the camera cover. I hope that was clearer than mud! This is a first for me, but I’m determined to fix it or at least give it a shot. Does anyone know where exactly this piece goes, & how does it fit in. It’s odd shape is really confusing me???? Thank you so much!! Link to a pic below

That is the NFC bracket. You can see it here on Step 39 of this guide.

Now, before I go, have you properly cleaned the phone from any water damage? While the 6S is well sealed, it is not water proof and water can and does work it's way inside. Eventually, the water will seep underneath the EMI shields and even underneath the IC's. This can cause latent issues.

Thank you, the picture definitely helps some, but I’m still trying to figure out how exactly to fit it in there? My phone was submerged in the tub for at least 30 mins, as I fell asleep. I put it in rice for 3 Days. Then I had my husband open it up for me. It was wet inside. I dabbed up the water & started taking stuff off. I did pretty good keeping up with everything & where it went, but this piece popped off & I didn’t see where it came from. That was a few weeks ago. I ordered a battery & it was a mess getting it, but I finally have it. I also bought the whole charging port assembly. I read somewhere that if I didn’t destroy the phone by short circuiting, it’d most likely need either a battery or charging both. The charging port was cheap, so I went ahead & got it. This looked so much easier online lol.
