    So my website is showing up on Google when searched for "site:website" but doesn't appear in any search results page when searched for the keyterm, the keyterm is low competitive. So does that mean that my website is still in the sandbox or it's already out of the sandbox?

    some will tell you there is no sandbox effect, while I believe the "sandbox is real". But for 6 months you should be already out normally it takes me 2 months.
    Maybe is a backlink issue or maybe just SEO now is tooooooo slow!!

    Sandbox after 6 months... definitely not. Your keyword either isn't low competition as you might think, or your onsite SEO is bad. For majority of terms, you should be ranking at least somewhere after 6 months, if you did your homework right.
