If you want to publish on the Confluence page, then you'll have to download the page content, choose where on the page you want to insert it, insert the code for displaying the pdf, and then update the content of the page (don't forget to increment the version number).

In order to find the code you need for inserting the PDF, find a page that has an embedded PDF (or make one) and look at the storage format (under the ••• menu is "View Storage Format") and find the code that contains the name of the PDF. You can use this as a template for the code you need to insert.
