 I’m using the XML Sitemap feature that adds a sitemap.xml to the root. This works when I go to it in my web browser but when I submit the sitemap.xml to Google Search Console, it returns the following error: Couldn’t fetch

Are you sure its the same issue? 
 
If you can't 'submit'  sitemap sounds different issue!
 
Seems Kumaresh submitted it ok, just reporting 'Couldn’t fetch' - it been submitted!

I'm sure it was "unable to fetch".  I tried everything, I am sure my sitemap is not error-free.  and I also tested the oke crawler crawler.  everything is not blocked.  100% completely error free.  but the sitemap cannot be fetched.  I tried submitting different sitemaps

Hi,

My site is a bit new, with around 4K links in it. I have created a sitemap and am trying to submit to google using their search console.
When I submit the sitemap, search console status is "Couldn't fetch".
I tried what is asked in this link even

The test live URL runs for a couple of minutes and throws a "Something went wrong, if the issue persists please try after few hours".
I am not sure what is wrong, please help.

I have one more question can we have the sitemap in a different folder other than root I mean can I have a site map at <host>/static/sitemap.xml ?
