You can look at the many references in the Upanishads for equivalent words
and expressions that unambiguously convey the idea of mithyatva.

The Chandogya 6th chapter says the world as a transformation of Brahman is
not real. Mrittikeyyeva satyam..

Apaagat agneragnitvam

Mandukya too has such references like Brahman  is prapanchopasham.

Mayamaatram dvaitam Advaitam paramarthathah, etc.

There are many.
