[Solved] How to create a lightning select component dynamically with iteration

Shuaib Ahmed Asks: How to create a lightning select component dynamically with iteration
This question is similar: How to set the options of a dynamically created lightning:select?

but none of the solutions nest the iteration component inside another component..

like so:

Inside Controller:

someFunction(cmp, event, helper) : {
                "lightning:select", { 
                    "messageWhenValueMissing":"Did you forget to select a field?",
                    "value":"-- None --"
                "aura:iteration", {
        function(components, status, errorMessage){
            if (status==="SUCCESS"){
                var selectCmp = components[0];
                var iterationCmp = components[1];
                selectCmp.set("v.body", iterationCmp);
                cmp.set("v.inputValueComponent", selectCmp);
            else if (status==="INCOMPLETE"){
                console.log("No response from server or client is offline.");
                else if (status==="ERROR"){
                    console.log("Error: " + errorMessage);        


Inside Component

<aura:attribute name="inputValueComponent" type="Aura.Component">

<aura:attribute name="picklistValues" type="String[]" default="one, two, three"/>
