Search this site before posting new questions, and provide more details. If you don't know how to look for logs in your system then you have a long way before you can successfully operate a cloud.

Go to /var/log/nova and /var/log/glance and check nova-compute.log, nova-api.log, /var/log/glance/api.log and paste the suspected contents on your post.

This is a problem with your kernel modules and specially iptables. Check your nova-compute.log to find something like:

stderr: "iptables-restore v1.4.21: iptables-restore: unable to...

I think some iptables modules are not enabled in your kernel which causes this error(Maybe iptable_filter module is not loaded into your kernel). So please provide more info.

Atleast write exactly few next lines after "command: sudo nova-rootwrap /etc/nova/rootwrap.conf iptables-save -c Exit code: 1" line of your log file in this post, to help us find exact problem.

I think you missed to install python rootwrap module.
