You can specify the uid when creating the user like this

useradd -u 6000 newuser

what is not working out? You need to provide details as well as a couple of your attempts

the -g needs a group name rather than a numeric.
if you want the group to also have a 6000+ gid you would first use the groupadd -g 6000 newgroup
useradd -u 6000 -g newgroup newuser

id newuser?

Any reason you are not using the common users group for the users?  If some users need to be members of another group you can set that using the -G additionalgroup, additionalgroup2
