Open terminal and run the below command, change the url accordingly.

chromium-browser --incognito file:///home/srinivas/example-page.html

To make things easy you can put the code in a text file and save it with a .sh extension.

Once its saved right click on the file, navigate to the permission tab and check mark

allow executing file as program

Run this command in the terminal:

chromium-browser --incognito <path-to-file>

A picture example after running the command above on a html page I saved online (this page actually):
