you probably need to drain the tank and change petrol if the car turns over.

As a precaution I would do a visible inspection of all
belts and ensure they are in a reasonable state

Best

The starter is not activated when I press the start button.

Oil pressed lamp lights up immediately I put battery on the car.

It's like there's something that keeps components active and others are disabled.

The fuel pump is preferably not activated when I switch on the ignition.

The alternator is probably seized because it's been stood, this issue causes the oil light to come on when the Battery is connected and in turn your starter circuit is disabled, fuel pump could be relays, burnt yellow connector of death or a knackered pump.

If it is seized it will need to be removed so crank over by hand first, new isn't readily available so if the casings are ok you could have it rebuilt, regulator/diode pack fails back feeding current from a charged battery, common issue.

Is it not a normal alternator, with 12v+ out of d+ at the alternator?

Yes it's the dash battery warning light when it's no charging.
