Unable to create a new Confluence page with the REST API Edited

Hello,
I am attempting to create a new Conflunce page using the REST API as described here:
https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-server-rest-api/confluence-rest-api-examples
and
https://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-confluence/REST/latest/#content-getContent

I get a successful response, however the return is the HTML for our main confluence page, not what I expected to get back as described in the documentation.

This issue appears to be very similar, if not identical to this problem:

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Why-does-Confluence-REST-API-return-html/qaq-p/42841
Which appears unresolved still.

Here's what I'm doing:
curl -u XXXXX:XXXXX -X POST -H 'Content-Type:application/json' -d'{"type":"page","title":"new page","space":{"key":"T4T"},"body":{"storage":{"value":"<p>This is a new page</p>","representation":"storage"}}}' https://dev-confluence.server.com/confluence/rest/api/content/

Where T4T is my space key.

I've tried adding an ancestor to an existing page in the space, as well as removing the space key with the ancestor, nothing seems to be working.

Any suggestions?

This widget could not be displayed.

Removing the "/confluence" from the url seemed to fix this problem for me. So your url above would become

 

https://dev-confluence.server.com/rest/api/content/

 

Dunno, if it will help you, but it certainly did me!
