Why a child cell is created by default?

Hi everyone!
I installed devstack (single node configuration) and I tried to create an API cell by enabling the nova-cell service and configuring the nova.conf as in here (the Openstack kilo documentation on cells).

[DEFAULT]
compute_api_class=nova.compute.cells_api.ComputeCellsAPI

[cells]
cell_type=api
name=api
enabled=True

After stacking, I only get a child cell that is created by default (I did not specify anything about a child cell). Can someone explain why the configuration in nova.conf is not taken into account and why a compute cell is created instead? Thank you!
