I am having a bit of trouble parsing what you wrote, but I think you are saying you are issuing
something like:
wget --mirror http://example.com/subdir1/subdir2/fileiwant
and getting at your location
which is a little confusing, because I would have expected you to get (with just the --mirror option):

please give an example command and output received and desired.

to get ./fileiwant from my example url above I think you would have to do:
wget --mirror ---cut-dirs=2 -no-host-directories \
