The cable runs under the car on the drivers side. if it broke under there it would be hanging down some. Most likely it broke at the foot pedal. There is a metal stud that is molded on the end of the cable and is prong to break first.

I have 98 model of corolla and the handbrake do not hold the car, not even just a little .....

it iss probably a broken brake cable. If the handle offers no resistance when you pull on it then the cable is broken. If it offers a lot of resistance then it is rusted and needs to be replaced. If the cable is OK then the problem lies inside the wheel where the emergency brake cable activates the mechanism.

Emergency Brake does not work

You handle should pull a cable, you need to see if the cable is moving with the handle, at both ends. (At the rear by the brakes also) Remove whatever covers the handle to see what is moving, or isn't....start here!
