https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.openmw.OpenMW
includes both setup and run instructions.

If those do not work, then the flatpak maintainers need to be notified.

Can you verify that testman's comment works?

You can launch the installed flatpak either through the terminal with flatpak run, as detailed in the store page - and by testman above.

You can also launch the generated launcher that's located in either /var/lib/flatpak/exports/bin/ or ~/.local/share/flatpak/exports/bin/ depending on if you used the system or user installation.

Additionally, Flatpak generates proper .desktop files that should be picked up by your desktop environment, so you should be able to just launch OpenMW from your regular application menu/launcher - if you use one of those.
