You don't need an index.htm. Orchard will just take over and present its own home page (which is stored in the database, not in a physical file).

But there is default index.htm in my hosting. so I need to delete the index.htm or replace it? and should I change some setting on the webmatrix? change the default page setting?

Yes, you should be able to delete index.htm. As Betrand said, Orchard will take over and present the home page - you don't need that file in the directory. And you shouldn't need to do anything with WebMatrix - it doesn't know anything about how Orchard's routing and home page logic works, so it won't be able to help you.
