I have any local tiles (seed via Mapproxy) of any local area. May I configure mapproxy that I can use a local tile directory on my computer as a source and get the output then WMS ? I've already configured mapproxy.yaml which has this lines: services:

    srs: ['EPSG:3857', 'EPSG:4326', 'EPSG:3395']
    # image_formats: ['image/jpeg', 'image/png']
      # metadata used in capabilities documents

But cannot see the results, just empty page whout scrolling Please explain should I use cache->directory_layoutORdirectory? If so how does it look?

Accordingly MapProxy documentation sources parameter of caches section is mandatory, but as I can see you use empty list. You should point source of your cache. If you are planning to use your source only during the seeding process - option seed_only may be helpful.
