During the reign of King Jun in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC, the capital of Gojoseon and Wiman Joseon was Pyeongyang.
Since Wiman Joseon was founded by a small group of refugees from China and a majority of natives, under the leadership of Wiman, it was clear from the start that the new state inherited the legitimate legacy of Gojoseon.
Wiman Joseon grew stronger through trade and mediation with Han and thus accumulated enough military and economic power to subjugate small countries such as Imdun and Jibeon and gradually emerged as a powerful nation.

 Was Wiman Chinese or Korean? - China History Forum, Chinese History Forum
Yan's conquest, or Wiman's of non-Sinitic populations, by no means equals the conquest of these peoples and regions by unified China.
"Joseon" was definitely a very ancient name, as some Shang or Zhou noble lineages already named themselves "Xian-Yu" (the Yu clan that has received the fiefdom in Joseon).
The Chinese characters 朝鮮, which phonetically pronounced Joseon in MODERN Korean and Chaoxian in MODERN Mandrian (neither of which accurately preserves the sounds of how 朝鮮 may of actually sounded back in the 3rd century BCE), is clearly a phonetic value and does not literally mean "Land of the Morning Calm"
