File permissions within a snap

 I have a java application built as a .snap.
As part of its normal operation it will create some files (for output).
However this is not successful due to permissions issue :
For example , I tried to create the file in /home/ubuntu/examples/ : /home/ubuntu/examples/example.txt
(Permission denied)
I got a similar result whenI tired to create it in the current dir :

So is there a way around this?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
