unable to create java package in maven project imported in Intellij

I’ve imported a maven project into Intellij and added a module to the src directory. But now I discovered that I cannot add a java package to new directory as I can with other projects, i.e., whenever I right click on the newly added directory, Intellij does not give me the possibility to add a java package. It would seem that this is a setting issue but I cannot find the setting that would control this. I’m using the community edition of Intellij: 2018.3
