I'm not sure what you are asking at all. Please be more specific.

What is the web address of your board? Is it one you installed your self or one which was provided for you? ARe you logged in with the main Founder account the one created when you installed the board?

You need to properly configure the forum permissions to allow you to see forums, no one in phpBB3 has permissions to see new forums by default. :)

You need to configure your forum permissions to allow you and others to see and and post in them. Admin control panel -> permissions tab -> forum based permissions -> forum permissions

Select the forum/forums to set permissions for, then select users or groups to configure forum permissions for on the selected forums. This can be done using the role drop down menu for each forum or clicking the advanced permissions link on the right to individually set each permission :)
