Thanks, I understand the issue now.

But I cannot reproduce what you describe on my machine: what I get is
the behavior you want, i.e. the Emacs frame created by emacsclient
disappears from the display, and the terminal window from which I
invoked that emacsclient gets back the focus.

So perhaps this is something related to your window manager?  That's
assuming that you see the same behavior when you start "emacs -Q",
then start the server there, and finally do what you describe above.
If in "emacs -Q" the problem doesn't happen, then look in your
~/.emacs for the culprit.  If, OTOH, "emacs -Q" exhibits the same
behavior, perhaps sharing your window manager and its customizations
will reveal the reason(s) for the behavior you observe.
