You can find here how to create a project.
When you choose the create project option you will have two choices: next-gen project and classic project. If you are not a Jira administrator, then you will have only the next-gen option.
From what I read on the other forums, JIRA took Classic Projects away from everybody and only JIRA Admins can create Classic Projects. Other users can only create Next Gen projects.
To me this is a TERRIBLE decision, because for me (the JIRA Admin) I now have to create projects for everybody because the Next Gen projects do not have the features my PM needs. It's great that Roadmaps was done first because that's going to be an awesome feature, but when 7/10 features are not ported over they should only ask Early Adopters to trial Next Gen projects and leave everyone else to be middle market.
