CellZone is on a distinguished road

I created with snappyHexMesh of a cube a CellZone, called cubeCellZone and a FaceZone called cubeFaceZone.
Now I want to have a faceSet, which consists of faces, but only from the inlet (one side) of the cube. So only the faces which are for example orthogonal to the normal vector n=(1 0 0).

Therefore I tried to use topoSetDict:
name  CubeFaceSet;
type    faceSet;
action  new;
source  normalToFace;
faceSet  cubeFaceZone;
normal  (1 0 0);
cos     0.1 ; }
The result is, that my cube is cutted into many slices , each perpendicular to n=(1 0 0).

Do you have any suggestions to solve this porblem?

Besides, I would like to visualize my cubeFaceZone in paraView. But with foamToVTK I can only chose cellSet and faceSet?

Thank you for your help!
