If I understood you correctly, you can't create new files/dirs in a directory that you created while you were root, right? In that case, it's only natural. That directory will be owned by root, and thus only root can modify it. To fix that, either chown it so that you own it ("chmod mosg: thedirname"), or chmod it to give everyone write permission to it ("chmod 777 thedirname").

If you create a folder/file with root, then root owns it and other users (by default) can't write or execute it. This means no subdirectory creation. So change to root and do this:
