Your key could be stuck for several reasons. Since the steering wheel moves, it’s not the steering lock.
The first thing to attempt, is to use an electrical cleaner or air duster to remove any debris that may be stuck in the ignition cylinder. If dirt or debris is stuck inside the cylinder, with all its intricate moving parts, the key may become lodged inside and won’t turn or pull free. Worst case scenario you will need to replace the entire ignition cylinder.
