Obviously you added a syntax error to nova.conf, somewhere around the placement section.

what is the best network option to use in a manual installation of openstack:

Networking Option 1: Provider networks
Networking Option 2: Self-service networks

The one that fits your environment and the purpose of the cloud best. E.g. if you need tenant networks, you need option 2. If not, option 1 is simpler.

By the way, to ask a question, create a new question rather than a comment.

This is an issue with the /etc/nova/nova.conf being misconfigured. The final line states exactly where the issue is down to the line 8897 after resolving that, you should be all set on that issue.
