My Facebook account was opened as a fanpage/business account (not a fanpage as a child from a personal account). Now I want to create an app. The link developers.facebook.com/apps/ gets redirected to my fanpage.

Does that mean I can't create an app with this account?

Facebook only allows accounts that belong to a person to create apps. They do not value a company page as an account that is supposed to anything but promoting themselves. The people behind (which usually are admins) can create apps.
