Doesn't seem to be an issue here. You're not using the iPhone as a hot spot for the HomePod are you? Reboot your device and see if the issue persists. If so use Feedback - HomePod - Apple to let Apple know.

No, I’m sure that the phone was not used as a hotspot. No need to reboot, when I disconnect the WiFi, the problem is solved. But everytime I do that, using the phone to control homepod, the phone will be hot, again.

What about other Wi-Fi activity on the phone, e.g. browsing the web, streaming a video? Does that make it get hot too? What options are you using for AirPlay on the HomePod? See the Change AirPlay settings section of Change settings for HomePod - Apple Support for details.

I don’t find other activities that make the phone getting hot so quickly. And I just use the phone to control what’s playing on homepod by applemusic, not through AirPlay. I have turned on all the features of homepod except the Accessibility.

I was curious as to whether or not the Everyone setting is on, since it can possible raise a peer-to-peer connection between the devices, even, perhaps, when you're only using the iPhone as a remote. Either way I really think you should contact Apple over this. Unwanted heating won't be good for your device and its battery.
