If God created the earth perfect why would He want humans in heaven?
The spiritual heaven is a spiritual realm for spirits only, really humans wouldn't fit in.

God told the first human couple: “Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth.” (Genesis 1:28) Earth was to be man’s permanent home, where he could live forever. Death would come to the first man and woman only if they disobeyed God. Sadly, they chose to disobey.—Genesis 2:17; 3:6.
The Bible says that “there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise.” * (2 Peter 3:13) By means of his Kingdom, God will restore our earth to the condition he intended for it, “and death will be no more.” (Revelation 21:3, 4) Is that speaking of life in heaven or on earth? For something to “be no more,” it had to be there in the first place. But death has never existed in heaven. Logically, then, that verse refers to what will happen on earth, where we were meant o live and where we yearn to be with our loved ones. The Bible also reveals that the dead will be brought back to life and reunited with their loved ones.—John 5:28, 29.

Human souls are spirits, so they would fit in just fine.

Because, as the Bible teaches, our spirits really are his children. He loves us.

I don't believe anyone alive knows what heaven and hell are, so I'm not going to even try to explain my personal belief, being one of 7.4 billion others.
I DO believe there is more than this transitory life of space/time. I believe there is more than this temporal physical body we inhabit so we can get around in this life. But that's about it.
If pressed, I believe that heaven and hell are weak attempts to describe an indescribable existence and proximity to God.

God gave us a Sun with a finite fuel supply. Earth was always intended to be place to prepare people for Heaven.

When God created the angels , he created them to live not on the Earth or in the sea but in heaven.
When God created fishes , he did not create them to live in heaven or to walk on land but the sea.
The only reason Adam and Eve died was because they sinned.
They were created to enjoy life on Earth.
If Adam and Eve would Not have sinned, where would they have been living today?
In heaven? In the sea? or, Enjoying life on a paradise Earth?
If all righteous people went to heaven after death, then that would mean many Scriptures that directly speak about life on earth where the righteous will reside, would be meaningless, and we know that will never be the case.
Here are some of those verses.
King James Bible Isaiah 65:17
For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
English Standard Version Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
New International Version Psalms 37:29
The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.
English Standard Version Matthew 5:5
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Good News Translation 2 Peter 3:13
But we wait for what God has promised: new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness will be at home.
And Jesus promised one of those criminals hanging next to him,
”And he said to him: “Truly I tell you today, you will be with me in Paradise.” Jesus said Paradise, Not heaven.
New World Translation Luke 23:43
So the Scriptural evidence shows that God has a purpose for the Earth, a perfect planet. There is nothing wrong with the earth, it is the people on it.

God created the perfect place for us to live in and enjoy. We, as humans screwed it all up.
