    This is the second time it's happening to me.

    I create html website and attach /blog in WP After a few days it replaces my home page and then home page can't be seen in top 30 pages. This is very annoying.

    Would anybody know what may be the reason?

    Probably a setting in Wordpress somewhere on your theme. Usually you can set which page you want as the home page eg a static page or use the blog.

    Can the html be crawled after setting up WP?

    How's your content on frontpage? 500+ words? keyword optimized?
    You could try lowering the amount of frontpage keyword on your blog.
